Lyrics: Father, why must I suffer? Please let this cup just pass me by. <br/>Not my will, but only Thy will be done, yes, even if I must die! <br/>My Son, the world is waiting, the time has come to fulfill the plan. <br/>I love you and yet we must do this sacrifice for the sins of man. <br/> <br/>The road to Calvary is rocky and long, The sky grows dark, the wind blows strong. <br/>Earthquakes and thunder and lightning and rain, The curtain of the temple is rent in twain! <br/> <br/>Surely this was the Son of God! <br/> <br/>Then on the third day the women came, Bringing sweet spices to honor His name. <br/>Found not the Savior, the tomb was bare. Only an angel with news to share. <br/> <br/>Christ has arisen, the stone is gone, Go tell the world with a joyful song. <br/>Christ has arisen to set man free, Showing the way for the world to see. <br/> <br/>Alleluia, sing alleluia! Christ is risen, our Lord is risen! <br/> <br/>Now to the world this glad message we bring: Jesus is risen, our Lord and King! <br/>Now is fulfilled Heavenly Father's plan, Bringing salvation and life to man! <br/> <br/>Alleluia, sing alleluia! Chris is risen, our Lord is risen! <br/>Christ the Lord! <br/> <br/>
