Barabbas, Did You Believe?

Barabbas, did you believe?
Notorious rebel
Murderer and thief
Bound in chains
when the soldiers came.
What did you expect
as you stood before Pilate?
With Jesus there beside
as the crowd screamed

“Crucify!”

You, a sinner released
while the Sinless took
your place.
What did you do
with your chains now removed?
To the cross did you go
to see the One who suffered woe-
Did your eyes meet
at the Savior’s feet
Barabbas, did you believe?

“Bearing shame and scoffing rude,
in my place condemned He stood,
sealed my pardon with His blood:
Hallelujah, what a Savior!”
-from the hymn Man of Sorrows by P. P. Bliss
