Cowboy Roy's Gospel

the reason why

THE REASON WHY I SENT MY SON TO YOU ON EARTH BELOW

WAS BECAUSE YOU NEEDED A SAVIOR AND I LOVED YOU SO

I GAVE HIM ALL OF MY BLESSINGS AND I WATCHED HIM GO

EVEN THOUGH I KNEW THE FUTURE AND THAT HIS BLOOD WOULD FLOW

I WATCHED HIM AS HE GREW FROM A BABE TO A CHILD

HE WENT INTO THE WORLD FOR ME HIS SERVICE MADE ME SMILE

I SAW JOHN BAPTIZE MY SON AS I LOOKED DOWN FROM ABOVE

I WAS SO PLEASED WITH HIM TO HIM I SENT DOWN A DOVE

I WATCHED MY SON GATHER DISCIPLES AND IT FILLED MY HEART WITH JOY

ALL THE WONDERFUL THINGS THAT HAPPENED TO MY DARLING BOY

THEN THERE WAS THE TIME IN THE DESERT WHEN SATAN ENTERED THE FRAY

MY SON BATTLED HIM FOR 40 NIGHTS AND 40 DAYS

MY HEART CRIED WITH HAPPINESS WHEN HE TOLD SATAN TO FLEE

I ONLY DO THE WORK FOR MY FATHER WHO SENT ME

I WATCHED MY SON PERFORM MIRACLES TAKING PEOPLE'S SINS FAR AWAY

I WAS SO PLEASED WITH ALL THAT MY SON WAS DOING THAT DAY

BUT THEN THE DARK DAY DREW NEARER AND MY HEART FLOODED WITH LOSS

FOR THE SINS OF ALL MEN MY SON WOULD BEAR THE COST

I WATCHED HIM CLIMB THE MOUNTAIN AND I HEARD HIM EARNESTLY PRAY

FATHER IF IT BE YOUR WILL PLEASE LET THIS CUP PASS AWAY

THEN I WATCHED THE SOLDIERS COME AND TAKE MY SON AWAY

THE DAY THAT I HAD BEEN FEARING WOULD COME THE VERY NEXT DAY

I WATCHED HIM STAND BEFORE PILATE PILATE TURNED HIM TO THE CROWD

THE CROWD SAID GIVE US BARRABAS CRUCIFY JESUS WAS CRIED ALOUD

I WATCHED THEM STRIP HIS CLOTHES PLACE A CROWN OF THORNS ON HIS HEAD

MINUTES AWAY WAS COMING THE DAY I HAD LONG DREADED

I WATCHED SOLDIERS LASH OUT AND PLACE STRIPES UPON HIS BACK

MY HEART SANK DEEPER AND DEEPER AS I WATCHED THIS ATTACK

I WATCHED HIM CARRY A CROSS UP THIS LONG AND WINDING HILL

MY SON DID IT ALL BECAUSE HE KNEW IT WAS MY WILL

THEN I WATCHED IN HORROR AS THEY NAILED HIM TO THE TREE

AND I HEARD MY SON CRY OUT MY FATHER WHY HAST THOU FORSAKEN ME

THE REASON WHY I HAD TO LOOK AWAY FROM THE CONDITION MY SON WAS IN

WAS BECAUSE THROUGHOUT HIS BODY WAS THE MARKS OF ALL MAN'S SINS

I WATCHED MY SON'S BLOOD TRICKLE DOWN THE OLD WOODEN RUGGED CROSS

MY HEART WAS SLOWLY BREAKING FOR I HAD NEVER FELT SUCH LOSS

MY SON CRIED OUT IT IS FINISHED AND I WATCHED HIM SLOWLY DIE

THERE WAS NOTHING MORE I COULD DO BUT TO JUST WATCH AND CRY

I WATCHED HIM BEING CARRIED TO A TOMB WHERE HE LAY FOR 3 DAYS

THEN WITH A GLORIOUS SHOUT OF HOPE I WATCHED HIM BEING RAISED

THEN AFTER SEVERAL DAYS CAME AND WENT I SAW MY SON BEGIN TO RISE

THEN I KNEW HE WAS COMING HOME TO JOIN ME IN THE SKY

I WATCHED HIM ENTER MY KINGDOM I RUSHED TO HOLD HIM ONCE AGAIN

I SAID MY SON I'M VERY PLEASED WITH YOU TIME TO SIT BESIDE ME ONCE AGAIN
