Song Description

Jesus arrived on earth with a revolutionary principle, the forgiveness of sins and the attainment of salvation through His love and sacrifice. For that, He was crucified, thus fulfilling His own promise and purpose.


Lyrics by Peter Merz Music by Mark E. Ellis

In an age that was closing fast, no one sure how long it would last
They were not prepared for this. Not now, and certainly not like this.
He spoke of life and resurrection, but the elite said He brought insurrection.
When He spoke, the people listened, but the status quo said He bucked the system

He was the Revolutionary. He was the Revolutionary
He preached a Gospel of peace and love.
He was the Revolutionary. He was the Revolutionary.
And then He freed them with His blood.

In a time when might meant right, He cut through pretense and hype.
Spoke of peace and forgiveness, strength for the weary, rest for the restless.
Challenging the old regulations, He promised a new liberation.
And He challenged the old traditions, love for the lost was His one ambition .


His opponents allied in conspiracy
And in a jealous rage He was betrayed
Up on a hill, He was nailed to a tree
The price to ransom humanity

Repeat CHORUS, changing ?was? to ?is? and ?them? to ?us?
