What a contrast with Barabbas –
righteous Jesus would succeed;
Would Barabbas soon consider
Jesus’ death meant he was freed?

Freed from what? From Roman justice, –
for a second chance, but I
now am free of God’s just judgement:
in my place Christ chose to die.

Pilate and the crowd chose badly;
we can choose to compromise,
or neglect, – or give allegiance,
and enjoy Christ’s rich supplies.
