Were You There?

One of my favorite Old Hymns. Posted (late) for Good Friday.
Just was thumbing through my favorite old hymnal the other night and found this fantastic song.

Lyrics:
Were You There?
Old Negro Spiritual

Were you there when they crucified my Lord?
Were you there when they crucified my Lord?
Oh, sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble.
Were you there when they crucified my Lord?

Were you there when they nailed him to the tree?
Were you there when they nailed him to the tree?
Oh, sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble.
Were you there when they nailed him to the tree?

Were you there when they laid him in the tomb?
Were you there when they laid him in the tomb?
Oh, sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble.
Were you there when they laid him in the tomb?

Were you there when God raised him from the tomb?
Were you there when God raised him from the tomb?
Oh, sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble.
Were you there when God raised him from the tomb?

  1. OK I thought the youtube video was someone else but clicked out of curiosity. (yes, blonde moment – allow me a few a year ok? 🙂 You play beautifully. I want more of your music on your blog! Reader demands! The broken keys make it perfection.
