Thank you. Just picked up your post. Glad to hear Three Crosses is still being used. I sang it myself in concert a fortnight ago. Hoping to record during the summer. 16 new songs. Album title "Painting on Silence". Will post when it's done. Happy Easter. Roger Hurrell

Hi. I was just looking for a Youtube version of this song & saw this post. Roger, I sang it solo many times as a teenager & beyond - & can still remember all the (correct!) words! I'm hoping to sing it again this Easter. We have a ccl licence, so I hope thats ok with you! I think its about the most challenging song I know - certainly inspired - thank God - and you - for it.

It's always a thrill when the original hymn writer comes onto the board to provide us the right lyrics! :)

Thank you so much, Roger (and Roger's son!) :) Your hymn is wonderful and has brought blessings to many!

God bless,
Steve

Hello, the song is called "Three Crosses" and first appeared on "Alive" for Key records KL 002 and then on "Movin' Over, Movin' On" Pilgrim records JLP 160. It's also featured in the Roger & Jan Songbook.
Three small errors in the above lyrics:
V1 last line should be "crimes"
V2 first line should be "There was one who was bitter..."
V2 fifth line "But the next turned..."

Not bad though, I guess that's just the "folk process"!

Sorry for taking so long here you are

Three Wooden Crosses
Am C Am
There were Three wooden Crosses on a Hillside
G Am
and Three different people were to die
Am C Am
There were Two who deserved their execution
Am G Em Am
But the third took the place of you and I
Am C G Am
In the midst there hung Christ the son of David
C G Em Am
The one sacrifice for all mankind
A C G Am
On Each side hung a Murderer and a robber
C G Em Am
Men who were paying for their crime


Oh the one he was bitter in his scorning
If you're God bring us all down from the cross
But his tears were his Sentence , No one saved him
So he died and for ever more was lost
But the second turned and somehow in his dying
He cried Master please remember me
Oh today you shall be with me in glory
And from sin shall eternally be free

So the state of mankind is now before us
It's two halves divided there by God
There are some who accept and love our saviour
There are some who despise the ground he trod
There's a free choice to take him or reject him
Like the thief it is all you have to do
Oh my friends no one else can give the answer
On which side of Calvary's cross are you

On which side of Calvary's cross are you

IF this is it post back and i will sent the other verses.
I found this block because i was actually looking for an orriganal copy myself. I used to have it on tape but cannot find it ,

Think it may have been Gewn Murray or Dave pope and the Altheanians?
