Mercy not Justice

Pilate, stood willing,
with mercy at hand.
As he called to the crowd,
"tell me, which man"?

"Who shall die,
who shall go free"?
Barabbas or Jesus?
Justice or Mercy?

"Give us Barabbas",
screamed the masses out loud.
So a murderer was chosen,
to represent the crowd.

Pilate spoke again,
"what of this King of the Jews?
What with Him,
will you have me to do"?

Kill Him, crucify Him,
roared the words of the crowd.
Though Pilate was willing,
justice...was not allowed.

Mercy not justice,
spoke loudest that day.
For mercy on sinners,
is Jesus way!
