Musicals – Jesus Christ Superstar: Then We Are Decided lyrics

CAIAPHAS:
We’ve been sitting on the fence for far too long.

ANNAS:
Why let him upset us?
Caiaphas, let him be.
All those imbeciles will see
He really doesn’t matter.

CAIAPHAS:
Jesus is important.
We’ve let him go his way before
And while he starts a major war,
We theorize and chatter.

ANNAS:
He’s just another
Scripture-thumping hack
From Galilee!

CAIAPHAS:
The difference is they call him King!
The difference frightens me!
What about the Romans?
When they see King Jesus crowned
Do you think they’ll stand around,
Cheering and applauding?
What about our people?
If they see we’ve lost our nerve
Don’t you think that they deserve
Something more rewarding?

ANNAS:
They’ve got what they want.
They think so, anyway.
If he’s what they want;
Why take their toy away?
He’s a craze!

CAIAPHAS:
Put yourself in my place!
I can hardly step aside!
I cannot let my hands be tied!
I am law and order!
What about our priesthood?
Don’t you see that we could fall?
If we are to last at all,
We cannot be divided!

ANNAS:
Then say so to the council.
But don’t rely on subtlety.
Frighten them, or they won’t see…

CAIAPHAS:
Then we are decided?

ANNAS:
Then we are decided

Kari Jobe – Oh The Power (The Garden Deluxe Edition Album)

Knees to the earth
That you breath by your word
As you watched the darkness come
Crushed by the weight of the cost as you prayed
Not my will but yours be done

Gethsemane, where heaven met me

Redeemer, crowned in endless praise
My Savior, name above all names
King Jesus, take the highest place

There on the hill, you surrendered your will
For they know not what they do
Grief in your heart, your hands bear the scars
Of a love that led you to the tomb

Calvary, where heaven met me

Redeemer, crowned in endless praise
My savior, name above all names
King Jesus, take the highest place

Redeemer, crowned in endless praise
My savior, name above all names
King Jesus, take the highest place

Oh the power of the cross
Oh the power of your blood (x5)

Oh darkness, you have lost your strength
Oh hell, you lost everything
King Jesus, take the highest place

Redeemer, crowned in endless praise
My savior, name above all names
King Jesus, take the highest place

Oh the power of the cross
Oh the power of your blood
Oh the power of the cross
Oh the power of your blood
