    Lyrics

    I was in the crowd
    The day that Jesus died
    And as He hung upon the cross
    His mother cried

    I saw the crown of thorns He wore
    The stripes upon His back
    The water and the blood ran out
    And then the sky turned black

    My mind was filled with anger
    My heart was filled with shame
    This man brought only healing
    Who could bring Him pain

    Why does it seem the strong
    Always victimize the weak?
    And suddenly I found myself
    Standing to my feet

    And I cried, "Who nailed Him there?
    This Child of peace and mercy
    Who nailed Him there?
    Come and face me like a man
    Who nailed Him there?"

    And the crowd began to mock me
    I cried, "Oh my God, I do not understand"
    Then I turned and saw the hammer
    In my hand

    I am just a Roman soldier
    An ordinary man
    I love my wife and children
    I do the best I can

    How could I have killed Him?
    It must be someone else
    There's got to be an answer
    I just can't blame myself

    And I cried, "Who nailed Him there?
    This Child of peace and mercy
    Who nailed Him there?
    Come and face me like a man
    Who nailed Him there?"

    And the crowd began to mock me
    I cried, "Oh my God, I do not understand"
    Then I turned and saw the hammer
    In my hand

    I nailed Him there
    The child of peace and mercy
    I nailed Him there
    I am the guilty man

    I nailed Him there
    With my sins and my transgressions
    I cried, "Oh my God, now I understand
    When I turned and saw the hammer in my hand"
