Upon a Hill

Three crosses upon a hill,
  outside of Galilee.
Two thieves and a king,
  to fulfill the prophecy.

In a garden called Gethsemani,
  He prayed and sorely cried.
Before the cock crowed that night,
  thrice He was denied.

The fallen temple was rebuilt,
  a short three days later.
When no body could be found,
  just an empty sepulchre.

Three crosses upon a hill,
  outside of Galilee.
Dead is the King of the Jews;
  live long, oh humanity.
