Wishing everyone here, and their loved ones, a very blessed Easter weekend. Praise God for The Gift of His Son!

And thank you Terry Taylor for your wonderful song below, which beautifully reflects on Christ's passion.

You Lay Down

from the album "John Wayne"
Words & Music by Terry Taylor
©1998 Twitchen Vibes (BMI)

In a garden of thorns
my Rose of Sharon
bleeds till she's the color
of the moonlight
and though the angels wrap her
in their feathered arms
they cannot conceal her from
the darkest night

And you didn't say a word
when they accused you
You did not fight back when the whole world used you

When hate was crowned King
and love was diminished
you stood meek as a lamb there
without blemish
And they laughed when you cried out
"It is finished"

You lay down
You lay down
and I'll step upon your back
up high enough
above the fence
to see all the way to glory land

Above the garden of thorns
my Rose of Sharon
climbs up and clings to an old rugged tower
and though the angels offer her a thousand tears
still she wilts in the cold flames
of her darkest hour

And I lied when I said
I never knew you
You did not fight back
when I scarred and bruised you

chorus

And you didn't say a word
when we accused you
You did not
fight back
when we scarred and bruised you

When hate was crowned King
your love never diminished
You stood meek as a lamb there
without blemish
and we laughed when you cried out,
"It is finished"

So you lay down
you lay down
and I'll step upon your back
up high enough
above the fence
to see all the way to glory land

Happy Easter!

As long as you are doing Passion songs...

The Twist

from the album "Zoom Daddy"
Words by Terry Taylor, Music by Terry Taylor, David Raven, Jerry Chamberlain and Tim Chander
©1988 Broken Songs

hang on, believe
there's nothing up my sleeve
i've got no magic tricks to save the day
put down the gun
you're not helping anyone
and i'm not about to run or back away

don't walk the fence
then come to my defense
i don't need fair weather kinds of friends around
so watch and pray
as a traitor's kiss betrays
and rest your feet of clay on shaky ground

chorus
and look me in the face, at least what's left of it
tell me you still love me just a little bit
or nail me down, break the skin
hard enough to do me in
but don't leave me hanging
dying and dangling
twisting in the wind

here, touch my side
let doubt be crucified
nailed with your wounded pride
to love's grim altar
here, taste my flesh
my bloody humanness
i am no phantom guest
no skinless martyr

so taste and feel
there's nothing to conceal
you always knew the deal
as sacrifice
stand up, be strong
when all you've got is gone
i left the light turned on in paradise

chorus

and when the walls cave in
and the curtain's torn asunder
you'll know we're near the end
you'll hear me in the thunder
and when the sun grows dim
this will be your sign and wonder
that soon we'll meet again
just like we did last summer

The Call – Criminal

Have you gotten what you came for
Would you ever feel ashamed for
Criminal is the name
For what you’ve done to me
Did you shoot down what you aimed for
Could you ever take the blame for
Criminal is the name
For what you’ve done to me

We’ll meet tonight at the garden gate
Love betrayed with a kiss of fate
Bind my hands and bind my feet
Face to face at last we meet
In the darkened hearts of holy men
Truth is truth and must offend
Freedom dies as freedom lives
Fear just takes while love just gives

Have you gotten what you came for
Would you ever feel ashamed for
Criminal is the name
For what you’ve done to me
Did you shoot down what you aimed for
Could you ever take the blame for
Criminal is the name
For what you’ve done to me

A hand is raised and the people cry
A choice is made who will live or die
Spirit claims what the flesh can’t see
Reason lost in the mystery
Life is pain, life is trouble
Paths will cross and you’re bound to stumble
Love will be what love will be
Lord who’s got the eyes to see

Have you gotten what you came for
Would you ever feel ashamed for
Criminal is the name
For what you’ve done to me
Did you shoot down what you aimed for
Could you ever take the blame for
Criminal is the name
For what you’ve done to me

Love stands on trial
Love stands denied

Love arrives and love prevails
Tore my soul on a rusty nail
Thrown aside and torn asunder
Lightning flash and a crack of thunder
Earth will rise and the rivers flood
You break my heart now the taste of blood
Lift me high for all to see
God what have you done to me

Have you gotten what you came for
Would you ever feel ashamed for
Criminal is the name
For what you’ve done to me
Did you shoot down what you aimed for
Could you ever take the blame for
Criminal is the name
For what you’ve done to me

With the Tired Eyes of Faith

from the album "The Berry Vest of the Swirling Eddies"
©1995 Words and Music Terry Scott Taylor

There's your hope
Nailed to the wood
There's your dream
Buried in the ground
Here's your body
Battered, bloodied and broken
Here's your peace
Teetering on the edge of the world

You're kneeling somewhere in the middle
Of the passion play
But with the tired eyes of faith
You'll see your resurrection day

Feel the dust
Clogging up your veins
There's your secret
Burning in the fire
Here's your heart
Cold, lonely and desperate
Here's all creation
Groaning for the day of deliverance

Your name is carved here in the headstone
The sky is thick with birds of prey
But with the tired eyes of faith
You'll see your resurrection day

Resurrection day will come
As surely as the rising sun
Death will fight a holy war
But it will live no more
Love will even the score
Resurrection day

Here's your trust
Betrayed with a kiss
There's your courage
Thrown to the lions
Here's your soul
Soiled, tattered and thread bare
Here's you love
Cast out and shunned like a leper

You're kneeling somewhere in the middle
Of the passion play
But with the tired eyes of faith
You'll see your resurrection day

You're kneeling somewhere in the middle
Of the passion play
But with the tired eyes of faith
You'll see your resurrection day
