The Eagle
Voting With The Crowd

Goodness exemplified
healing, feeding, teaching, calling and leading
God Almighty, in the flesh, deified
miracles and wonders exceeding

Without reproach, sinless, wearing thorns
He stood before the throng
Falsely accused, beaten, body torn
Him, Creator of heaven, who'd done no wrong

Being looked upon and hated
by many He'd healed and fed
Through their scourge of Him, men were sated
memories of His good deeds - dead

His strength spent in the garden
the coming battle already won on His knees
Like a lamb He purchased our pardon
as a criminal, hung upon the tree

He said "I'm the door
through me you have access
you are one the I'm dying for"
I'll purchase from bondage your egress

The crowd that stood and voted between two men
one a criminal, full of hate and deliberate venom
The epitome of all that's good was the other
but a crowd is easily guided by emotions of another

And each would vote because of the other
peer pressure of the 'crowd' their best choice obscured
Doing like everybody else, good judgement smothered
into the direction of what's bad, easily spurred

And it's the same today as it was back then
people voting party instead of best interest
a criminal, a thief, a liar, delivered to them
voting with the crowd will get you Barabbas
