When did he die,
This good and blameless man, the Son of God?
He died one afternoon.

Where did he die?
Outside the city walls and on a hill
This much we know.

How did he die?
Nailed to a cross and crowned with cruel thorns.
Like this he died.

Why did he die,
This good and blameless man, the Son of God?
He died for me.
