(or 1st capo Am)

Bm

Am

“We will give you robe of scarlet,

E

Crown of thorns upon your head.

Am

Strip you, mock you, crucify you.

G Am

King of Jews you’ll soon be dead!”

(chorus)

Heavenly Father, please forgive them,

G Am

For they know not what they do!”

Am

“Hope you don’t mind if we gamble,

E

Clothes are shared among us all.

Am

If you’re thirsty we will give you,

G Am

Wine to drink and a dash of gall !”

Am

“If you really are God’s son then,

E

Come down from your cross so high!

Am

You saved others , King of Israel,

G Am

Or have you told us all a lie ?”

(chorus)

“Heavenly Father, heavenly Father,

G Am

Why have you deserted me?

G Am

....It is finished.... I must die !”
