Mo Pitney - Jonas Lyrics


Oh it took me just a half a day to make the cross he’d bare
And the soldiers 15 minutes for the crown of thorns he’d wear
Simon from Cyrene, they made him carry the cross
As they marched him to the place of the skull
And offered him wine and gall

But Jesus wouldn’t take it
Some cried set him free
Then someone turned to me and asked
Now who do you believe
Do you take Him at his word
For it’s a double edged sword
Is He a lunatic, a liar or the Lord

Well, me, my name is Jonas
My trade is nails and men
But this one, oh He’s different
From any other one of them
With the first spike in His right hand
I looked Him in the eyes
The guilty ones cry out for shame
But His, they did not lie

Well, it’s too early for the sunset
Yet so dark we could not see
And I heard His voice cry out, my God, my God
Why have you forsaken me
We just cast our lots for His clothes
For none of us were sure
Was He a lunatic, a liar or the Lord

Oh we gathered in our room
In our sorrow and despair
Mary rushed from the tomb
Said our Lord is not there
And suddenly appeared to us with spike marks on His feet
Reached down His hands of blood and muck
And turned them to me
And said now who do you believe

Do you take me at my word
For it’s a double edged sword
Am I a lunatic, a liar or the Lord

Yes I take Him at His word
He’s my shield and sword
No lunatic, no liar, He’s my Lord
