1. From the pulpit of the cross suspended in the air
He preached His last sermon there
Seven statements full of deep meaning
While for our sins He was dying

2. He saw the Jews and gentiles mocking
Waging their heads and haughtily talking
He said, “Father forgive them, they know not what they do”
Forgive all, the gentile and the Jew

3. One thief saw really who He was
The spotless Lamb without flaws
He pleaded for forgiveness before his demise
“I assure you today, you will be with me in paradise”,

4. He saw Mary, next to John, weeping like none
He said to them, “Behold thy mother”, “Woman, behold thy son”
What caring thoughts for his suffering mother
He never looked at Himself, always cared for the other.

5. He was left alone in that thick darkness
And the host of evil close did press
He battled it out at Calvary
“My God, My God, why hast thou forsaken me?”

6. He went to save us at all length
Finally drained of human strength
For you and me the Lamb was cursed
In great dryness He cried, “I thirst”

7. The great battle was finally won
By God’s only begotten Son
It was a complete victory, nothing diminished
Then the Champion trumpeted, “It is finished”

8. No one took His life away,
He laid it down for all that day.
“Father, into thine hands I commend my spirit”
He opened heaven’s treasure for us to inherit.

9. From the pulpit of the cross suspended in the air
He preached His last sermon there
Seven statements full of deep meaning
While for our sins He was dying.
