Were You There?

Were You There?

As Christians, we live in the victory of the resurrection, but Good Friday is an excellent time to remember the suffering that made our salvation possible. This song has long been one of my favorite songs to sing on Good Friday.

Were you there when they crucified my Lord?
Were you there when they crucified my Lord?
Oh, sometimes it causes me to tremble
Were you there when they crucified my Lord?

Were you there when they nailed Him to the cross?
Were you there when they nailed Him to the cross?
Oh, sometimes it causes me to tremble
Were you there when they nailed Him to the cross?

Were you there when they laid Him in the tomb?
Were you there when they laid Him in the tomb?
Oh, sometimes it causes me to tremble
Were you there when they laid Him in the tomb?

Were you there when the stone was rolled away?
Were you there when the stone was rolled away?
Oh, sometimes it causes me to tremble
Were you there when the stone was rolled away?

Here’s a video of Johnny Cash and the Carter Sisters performing “Were You There?”
