A Bit About The Song…

Christ or Barabbas
This song asks the most important question of all – What shall I do with Jesus? Shall I crucify Him and let Barabbas free? Or shall I set Him free?

“Barabbas” is also translated as “Son of God” (bar – son of abbas – father). He also claimed to be the son of God. But his actions did not confirm his claim.

Will I choose to talk the talk and walk the walk, as Jesus did, and crown Him freely the King of my life? Or will I choose the hypocrite’s path and ask that Barabbas reign over me?

May this song ever keep the realization that this is our choice, every moment.

May you ever choose the King of kings to reign in your heart and find perfect Freedom.

Original words and music by The Rain. This is a Single Song from the album “Freedom”

“Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.”
Revelation 1:7

Lyrics

 What shall I do with Jesus, who stands before me now

Wearing this robe of purple, and the thorns upon His brow

Shall I release the robber, the carnal man of pride?

Sin, or a sinless Saviour? Oh, which shall be denied?

This is the question now. What will the answer be?

Shall I crucify King Jesus and set Barabbas free?

Solemn and awful question. How still the balance stands.

Mercy a moment lingers, it trembles in her hands.

Self on the seat of judgment, dare you the world deny?

Louder and louder calling, “Away and crucify!”

This is the question now. What will the answer be?

Shall I crucify King Jesus and set Barabbas free?

Not to the sinner only, this question comes with power.

Hear it, ye halting Christian in every trial hour.

This is the question now. What shall the answer be?

Shall I crucify King Jesus and set Barabbas free?

This is the question now. What shall the answer be?

I will crucify Barabbas and set King Jesus free!
