Would You Crucify Him?
Words and Music by John Michael Talbot
on Firewind
Copyright 1979

Intro: G C/G G C/G 

G        C/G
Sometimes   in the cool of the evening
C                      D                 C    G
The truth comes like a lover through the wind
G                    G/F#          G/E        Em
Sometimes though my thoughts have gone misleading
C                        D                C   G
She'll ask that same old question once again

N/C         G         G/F#  G/E   Em
Would you crucify him?
C           D
Would you crucify him?
C            G
My old friends
But would you crucify him?
                           G/F#     G/E   Em
I'm talking 'bout the swe - et Lord Je - sus
C                          D              C     G
If he'd stand right here among you once again

She's asking how many times
                   G/F#      G/E    Em
Will you look down  to  the harlot
C                   D                            C   G
Looking through her tears pretending you don't know
But you were once just like her
G                  G/F#         G/E     Em
How can you be now  so    self-righteous
C                       D                         C      G
When in the name of the Lord you throw the first stone


So now I turn to you
G                          G/F#           G/E              Em
Through your years of your robes and your stained-glass windows
C                            D                             C    G
And do you vainly echo your prayers say your pleasing the Lord
Profess the marriage with your tongue
G                    G/F#          G/E    Em
But your mind dreams like the harlot
C                               D                                C   G
And if the judge looks to your thoughts can't you guess your reward
G                                  G/F#       G/E  Em
Yet how many times have you quoted from your Bible
C                              D                           C    G
To justify your eye for your eye and your tooth for your tooth
You say that he didn't mean
G           G/F#         G/E  Em
What he was plainly saying
C                          D                         C    G
And like the Pharisee, my friend you're an educated fool
