Gently, we took His body down, wrapped the spice and linen 'round, our Lord.
Tenderly took the crown of thorn, from the head that took the scorn; Jesus, our Lord.
Mary, and Mary Magdalene, saw the final bitter scene, of our Lord.
Carefully watched all that was done, to the Savior and the Son; Jesus, our Lord.
Love made Him carry all our sin, and with love we carried Him, our Lord.
In the tomb He laid at rest, with our tears upon His breast; Jesus, our Lord.
There was no more we could do, there was no more we could say. So we covered His dear face, rolled the heavy stone in place. Then we walked away.
