       ÒIT WAS WRITTENÓ

                                                                                                                                  

 

 

 

CHORUS

 

 

 

IT WAS WRITTEN THAT CHRIST WOULD LEAVE HEAVEN TO ROAM THE EARTH

 

IT WAS WRITTEN A VIRGIN NAMED MARY WOULD GIVE HIM BIRTH

 

IT WAS WRITTEN THAT JESUS WOULD DIE FOR EVERY SIN

 

FULFILLING ALL THE PROPHECIES TOLD CONCERNING HIM

 

IT WAS WRITTEN THAT GIVING HIS LIFE WAS PART OF A PLAN

 

IT WAS WRITTEN THAT MANY WOULD DOUBT THE SON OF MAN

 

IT WAS WRITTEN THAT JESUS WOULD DIE IN THE WORST WAY

 

AND HANG ON A CROSS BUT RISE ON THE THIRD DAY

 

 

VERSE 1

 

 

 

THE NIGHT OF THE PASSOVER, AN EVENT SO COLLOSSAL

 

THE LAST SUPPER WITH JESUS AND HIS APOSTLES

 

BEFORE HIS DISCIPLES EVEN KNEW WHAT WOULD UNCOVER

 

HE UTTERED THIS IS WHAT I DESIRE BEFORE I SUFFER

 

HE TOOK THE BREAD, BLESSED IT THEN GAVE IT TO THEM THEN HE

 

SAID THIS IS MY BODY DO THIS IN MEMORY OF ME, THEN HE

 

TOOK THE CUP AFTER BREAD AND THEN HE SAID

 

THIS SYMBOLIZES THE COVENANT OF MY BLOOD SHED

 

WHILE THINKING AHEAD OF THE ONES THAT WOULD SOON SLAY HIM

 

HE THEN PREDICTS THAT ONE OF THE 12 WOULD THEN BETRAY HIM

 

PETER SAID FOR YOU LORD IÕD PUT MY LIFE ON THE LINE

 

BUT JESUS PREDICTED HE WOULD DENY HIM MORE THAN 1 TIME

 

WHAT THEY HEARD THEY THOUGHT WAS ABSURD AND OFF THE WALL

 

THEY WERE IN AWE, BUT THIS WAS THE PROPHECY JESUS SAW

 

HE SAID THE SON OF MAN WILL BE PERSECUTED BY MEN

 

AND THEN THE THINGS CONCERNING ME WILL COME TO AN END

 

THEN HE WENT OUT TO THE MOUNT OF OLIVES SO HE COULD PRAY

 

TO GOD FOR STRENGTH WITH HIS DISCIPLES NOT FAR AWAY

 

HE SAID IF ITÕS YOUR WILL FATHER TAKE THIS CUP FROM YOUR SON

 

BUT NEVERTHELESS ITÕS NOT MY WILL BUT ITÕS YOURS TO BE DONE

 

THEN AN ANGEL CAME GIVING HIM STRENGTH FROM UP ABOVE

 

BUT THE MORE THAT HE PRAYED HIS SWEAT WAS LIKE DROPS OF BLOOD

 

WHEN HE AROSE HE SAW HIS DISCIPLES WERE ALL ASLEEP

 

SO HE WOKE THEM AND TOLD THEM TO PRAY SO THEY WONÕT BE WEAK

 

BUT AS HE SPOKE HE SAW THE CHIEF PRIESTS COMING TO GET HIM

 

AND APPREHEND HIM AND THEN JUDAS APPROACHED TO KISS HIM

 

HE SAID TO JUDAS ARE YOU BETRAYING ME WITH A KISS

 

WITH NO SURPRISE BECAUSE HE ALREADY PREDICTED THIS

 

HE TOLD HIS DISCIPLES LET IT BE AND DONÕT ATTACK

 

AS THE PRIESTÕS SERVANTS ARRESTED HIM, SOON AFTER THAT

 

THE SECOND PREDICTION WAS REVEALED WITH PETERÕS DENIAL

 

AS THEY TOOK JESUS AWAY LEADING HIM TO THE TRIAL

 

 

CHORUS

 

 

 

VERSE 2

 

 

 

BEFORE THEY TOOK HIM TO TRIAL THE PRIEST SERVANTS HAD

 

WHIPPED HIM, FLOCKED HIM, KICKED HIM, AND MOCKED HIM

 

THIS TURN OF EVENTS MADE JESUS GRIEVE

 

THEY ASKED ARE YOU THE CHRIST, HE SAID IF I TOLD YOU, YOU WONÕT BELIEVE

 

THEY ASKED ARE YOU THE SON OF GOD IN THE FORM OF A MAN

 

HE SAID YES THIS IS CORRECT WHO YOU SAY I AM

 

THE MULTITUDE LED HIM TO PILATE TO TRY TO GET

 

JESUS CRUCIFIED, BUT AS SOON AS THE TRIAL SET

 

THEY SAID TO PILATE, HE CLAIMS TO BE THE CHRIST

 

AND FOR WHAT HE TEACHES WE FEEL HE NEEDS TO PAY THE PRICE

 

PILATE SAID TO CHRIST IS THIS TRUE WHAT IS SAID BY THEM

 

HE SAID YES, BUT PILATE SAID I FIND NO FAULT IN HIM

 

BUT THE CHIEF PRIESTS, RULERS, AND PEOPLE HAD ALL INSISTED

 

TO SOLICIT, FOR JESUSÕ DEATH THEY WERE PERSISTENT

 

SO PILATE SAID WHAT IÕLL DO IS RELEASE SOMEBODY UNTO YOU

 

THE DECISION IS YOURS, JUST TELL ME WHO

 

ITÕS TRUE, THEY ALL DESERTED THE CHRIST AND THEN ASSERTED TO

 

RELEASE A PRISONER NAMED BARRABAS, AN EX-MURDERER

 

SO THEY SUGGESTED IT AND STRESSED IT, ARRESTED CHRIST

 

THE MAJESTIC PILATE FINALLY DID WHAT THEY REQUESTED

 

THEY PUT ON HIS HEAD A CROWN OF THORNS, HIS CLOTHES WERE TORN

 

AND HIS FOLLOWERS ALL STARTED TO MOURN

 

HE CARRIED THE CROSS TO CALVARY FOR HIS LAST STOP

 

ASKING GOD TO FORGIVE THEM WHILE HIS CLOTHES THEY CAST LOTS

 

THEY NAILED HIS HANDS AND NAILED HIS FEET, SOME YELLED AND WEEPED

 

THEY SMELLED DEFEAT, I CANÕT HELP BUT THINK

 

ALL THE AGONY MISERY AND PAIN HE FELT

 

THEY SAID IF YOUÕRE CHRIST THEN WHY DONÕT YOU SAVE YOURSELF

 

AND AS THEY MOCKED HIM AS JESUS APPROACHED HIS DEATH

 

HE GAVE HIS SPIRIT TO GOD THEN HE BREATHED HIS LAST BREATH

 

ONLY TO SAVE OUR SOULS AND AS THE STORY GOES

 

ON THE THIRD DAY MY SAVIOR HAD AROSE

 

 

CHORUS

 

 

 

REPEAT

 

 

 

OUTRO

 

SINGING

 

               ( FORE TOLD, BY MY FATHER, HE TOLD ME BY MY FATHER, PROPHECIED BY

 

                 MEN CALLED OF GOD, HE WOULD DIE FOR YOU .  THE SON OF GOD WOULD

 

                 GIVE UP HIS LIFE FOR YOU, HE WOULD SHED HIS BLOOD, HE WOULD SEE

 

                 YOU THROUGH)
