Red

Nails in His hands and nails in His feet,
A spear in His side; O I’ve seen Him bleed.
The blood that dripped down from the thorns in His head;
That’s what I saw: I saw red.

2. The crowd on the road that went up the hill,
The place of the skull where the sinners were killed,
The stripes on His back by which we are healed;
That’s what I saw: I saw red.

Red is the colour of a wounded part;
Red is the colour of blood.
Red is the colour of a broken heart;
Red is the colour of love.

3. In the garden the tears that He cried,
The Judas kiss, the look in His eyes,
The love unending in the words that He said;
That’s what I saw: I saw red.

Ending:
Red is the colour of a wounded part;
Red is the colour of blood.
Red is the colour of a broken heart;
Red is the colour of love.
