  1. Were You There

From the album Seasons of Our Faith

I remember the first time I was asked to sing this song. I wasn’t Catholic at the time. My husband was helping the youth of the parish perform the “Living Stations of The Cross” (act out the Passion of Christ).

In a hushed Church, where a hammer had just come down for the last time, after Jesus said “It is Finished”, they pulled him down from the cross and as he lay in Mary’s arms, I began singing (with tear filled eyes) the words “Were you there when they crucified my Lord…Oh sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble tremble….were you there when they crucified my Lord”. I will never forget that moment.

Lyrics

Were You There

Were you there when they crucified my Lord
Were you there when they crucified my Lord
Oh Sometimes it causes me to tremble tremble tremble
Were you there when they crucified my Lord


Were you there when they nailed Him to the tree
Were you there when they nailed Him to the tree
Oh Sometimes it causes me to tremble tremble tremble
Were you there when they nailed Him to the tree


Were you there when they laid Him in the tomb
Were you there when they laid Him in the tomb
Oh Sometimes it causes me to tremble tremble tremble
Were you there when they laid Him in the tomb
