lyrics

Who was the carpenter who made the cross?
Who made the cross for Jesus?
Who was the carpenter who made the cross,
Who made the cross for my Lord?

Who was it drove the cruel nails
In the hands and feet of Jesus?
Who was it drove the cruel nails
In the hands and feet of my Lord?

Who was it plaited the crown of thorns
And pulled it down over his brow?
Who was it plaited the crown of thorns?
And the blood ran down his face.

Who laid the whip across his back?
And the scourge made his body bleed.
Who laid the whip across his back,
The bloody body of Jesus?

Who was it gave him vinegar to drink
When he was dying of thirst?
Who was it gave him vinegar to drink?
Who tormented my Lord?

Who thrust the spear into his right side
And the blood and the water flowed?
Who thrust the spear into his right side?
The wounded body of Jesus.

Who rolled the stone across the tomb
Where they buried the body of Jesus?
Who rolled the stone across the tomb
That he might not rise again?

Who rolled the stone away from the tomb?
Where was the body of Jesus?
Who said to Mary: Don't you weep?
Who but my risen Lord?

Who's coming back again to reign
When the poor shall inherit the earth?
Who's coming back again to reign?
Who but my risen Lord?
