By The Stanley Brothers

(D)One morning in Jerusalem (G)about the break of (D)dawn A great trial was in session, they tried our blessed (A)lord (D)They scorned him and they mocked him, they (G)made him carry the (D)cross On top of Calvary mountain, they (A)crucified my (D)Lord Chorus Oh the (G)cry (Jesus cried) from the (D)cross Forgive him blessed father, he died upon the (A)cross Oh the (G)cry (Jesus cried) from the (D)cross The son of God was dying, to (A)save the world from (D)loss Saint Peter he denied him at that awful trial at night He said he never new him, it was an awful sight He looked upon Saint Peter with eyes of perfect love Saint Peter's heart was broken, he prayed to God above Crying father it is finished then he bowed his head and died The world was left in darkness, the graves were open wide An earthquake shook Jerusalem the dead walked into town The multitudes were frightened, God's wrath came pouring down
