Very similar to Ver1, but corrected on a few fronts... :)

C              G         Am     Am7
Walking on the road to Jerusalem
F                    G          C
The time had come to sacrifice again
C            G          Am                      Am7
My two small sons, they walked beside me on the road
    F                     G                C
The reason that they came was to watch the Lamb

C      G               Am     Am7
Daddy, daddy what will we see there?
F                    G             C
There's so much that we don't understand
C                 G         Am         Am7
So I told them of Moses and Father Abraham
    F                 G                  C
And then I said, Dear children watch the lamb

Am                   Am7       F       
For there will be so many in Jerusalem today
Am         Am7           F            G
We must be sure the Lamb doesn't run away
      C            G         Am         Am7
And I told them of Moses and Father Abraham
F                 G                  C
Then I said, Dear children watch the Lamb

C                   G           Am                Am7
When we reached the city I knew something must be wrong
F                    G           F                 G
There were no joyful worshippers no joyful worship songs
  C                   G               Am             Am7
I stood there with my children in the midst of angry men
F                                  Dm
And then I heard the crowd cry out, 
Dm      G
Crucify him

Am                    Am7          F
We tried to leave the city, but we could not get away
Am                     Am7             F                   
Forced to play in this drama, a part I did not wish to play
Dm                     G
Why upon this day were men condemned to die?
Dm                              G         
Why were we standing here where soon they would pass by?

C            G     Am            Am7
I looked and said, even now they come
F                       G      F                       G
The first one cried for mercy, the people gave him none
C                  G               Am           Am7
The second one was violent, he was arrogant and loud
F                    G          F                 G
I still can hear his angry voice screaming at the crowd

     Am                    Am7  F     
Then someone said there's Jesus and I scarce believed my eyes
Am                   F
A man so badly beaten he barely looked alive
Dm                                  G
Blood poured from his body from the thorns upon his brow
Dm                    G
running down the cross and falling to the ground

  C                 G         Am                  Am7
I watched him as he struggled I watched him as he fell
F                   G             F                   G
The cross came down upon his back, the crowd began to yell
        C                  G              Am                 Am7
In that moment I felt such agony, in that moment i felt such loss
F                             G                  Dm              G
Until a Roman soldier grabbed my arm and screamed, You, carry his cross!

Am                     Am7              F     
At first I tried to resist him then his hand reached for his sword
Am                 Am7      F 
And so I knelt and took the cross from the Lord
Dm                      G
Placed it on my shoulder and started down the street
Dm                               G
The blood that he'd been shedding was running down my cheek

     C            G                Am                         Am7
They led us to Golgotha they drove nails deep in his feet and hands
    F                                     G              C
And yet upon the cross I heard him pray, "Father forgive them"
C                     G         Am           Am7
Oh, never have I seen such love in any other eyes 
F                   G                F                  C
Into thy hands I commit my spirit he prayed and then he died

Am                           Am7            F
I stood for what seemed like years I'd lost all sense of time
Am                         F               
Until I felt two tiny hands holding tight to mine
Dm                             G
My children stood there weeping, I heard the oldest say
Dm                           F   G     C
Father please forgive us the Lamb ran away

C      G                Am      Am7
Daddy, daddy, what have we seen here? 
F                    G             C
There's so much that we don't understand
C                    G           Am                   Am7
So I took them in my arms and we turned and faced the cross
    F                 G                  C
And then I said, Dear children watch the Lamb
