Have you ever thought about it
Or tried to comprehend
Nailing your child to a cross
To die for other’s sins
Then to have those same people
Denounce you and your son
And go along with their sinful lives
And ignore what you have done

That’s what we all do
When Easter comes around
We hunt candy and eggs and celebrate
A bunny coming to town
And while all those things are good and well
We should concentrate on the cross
And remember the pain and suffering
When Jesus died for us

Have you ever thought about it
Or tried to comprehend
Having your child die for others
But at his memorial -none attend
And go along with their sinful lives
Like it’s just another day
And forgetting the ultimate price
That Jesus had to pay

That’s what we all do
When Sunday comes around
We sleep in late or go to the lake
Or simply lay around
And while all those things are good and well
We should concentrate on the Lord
And remember him each Sunday
By worshiping in one accord

Have you ever thought about it
Or tried to comprehend
Your child being able to save souls from hell
But no one tells their friends
They go along with their sinful lives
Never trying to help save a soul
And make money, success and having fun
Their primary goal

That’s what we all do
When we don’t witness to others
We’d rather speak of sports or gossip
With our sisters and out brothers
And while that’s all good and well
We should concentrate on salvation
And remember to spread God’s wonderful news
And his gracious invitation.
