Away With Him!

Representative Text

1 "Away with Him! Away with Him!"
The scornful rabble cried,
And mocked, rejected, long ago,
Our Lord was crucified.

Refrain:
Do you accept the Son of God?
Or do you Him deny?
"Away with Him! Away with Him!"
Oh, be not that your cry.

2 "Away with Him! Away with Him!"
How many cry today
Who will not head his loving call,
But, careless, turn away! [Refrain]

3 "Away with Him! Away with Him!"
How hard the heart must be
To pas, unmoved, that blood-stained cross
Upon Mount Calvary! [Refrain]

4 "Away with Him! Away with Him!"
But, soul with Him will go
Thy hope of heav'n and all that makes
for joy while here below. [Refrain]
