They gathered there about the cross
To see Him crucified.
Some cheered and taunted gleefully,
While others wept and cried.
About the cross emotions stirred
In those who came to see;
While some reviled a man that day,
Others believed in His Deity.
About the cross we all must come
To someday make a stand.
Do you see your Savior hanging there,
Or just an ordinary man?

And it shall come to pass that whoever calls
on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
