Easter Sunday

Last Sunday we had an amazing Sacrament Meeting! One song that particularly touched my heart was sung by a friend, Carrie Cahoon. I had loved this song while in High School, but lost the CD and no longer have it. I don't get brought to tears often by the spirit in the room ... but I did with this.

If I had been there at his trial,
And watched as they mocked Israel’s King,
I wonder if I would have tried to turn their hearts to Him,
If I had been there when they whipped him,
And watched as he fell to his knees,
Would I have been willing to offer my own life for Him,
For His friends, how he bled
His love for them was just as he said
Greater love he showed the greatest love, of all

If I had been there at the hillside when they fastened his hands to the cross,
I’m sure that my heart would have broken,

For His friends, For His friends,
And that’s me if I do what he said
Would I give? Could I live my life like Jesus?

Well now, it’s been years since his lifetime,
But he and his love still remain,
And all that I want is to be like him,
He was all I hope to be,
I would give my life to be,
The kind of friend, Jesus was to me
