Song of The Centurion

Just another day, another cross
That’s what I supposed
I saw my soldiers laughing as they gambled for His robe
They were reckless with redemption
As they joked and rolled the dice
But to God it was no game
It was His greatest sacrifice

When I felt the earth shake
When I saw the ground break
When someone said, “The graves have opened wide
And the dead came back to life.”
And when I saw the skies turn dark and gray
When I saw Him look my way
And say, “Father forgive them they know not what they do
I knew, this was the Son of God.”

Well I knew the risk I had to take
To say it out loud
I was the leader of those soldiers
It was an angry crowd
Oh, but never such compassion
Had I seen in someone’s eyes
He spoke words of love to me
Even as I watched Him die


I didn’t care what the cost for my words would be
Cause I knew He shed His blood for even me
Oh what love…
