(This song can either be sung to the tune of "Row,row,row your boat"
or used as a chant. Different individuals or groups may lead each section with a sign to hold up saying "Pilate" etc... If you're really daring try each verse as a round.)
Wash,wash,wash my hands.
I'll send him out to die.
I'd like to set Jesus free,
Yet crowd cry "crucify" !
King, king, king of the Jews,
Raised high up on a cross
Save yourself,come down from here !
Then we'll believe you're boss !
My God, My God ! It's finished now !
I heard this Jesus cry.
He surely was the Son of God !
I watched. I saw him die.
Soldiers at the tomb
Roll, roll, roll the stone
Right across the grave.
We sealed dead Jesus, wrapped inside.
He'll no longer misbehave !
Run, run, running fast,
I 'll go to tell good news
Jesus lives, new life he gives !
I saw Him at the tomb !
