Were You There?

If you belong to a liturgical church, you’re led through the important days and seasons of the church year with songs that become both familiar and beloved.  It’s Good Friday, so I can’t keep myself from posting this hymn, which my granddaughter says is one of her favorites.  It’s an American spiritual that was first printed in 1899.  It was most likely composed by African-American slaves.  The title is “Were You There?”  Put yourself in the scene of the crucifixion, and meditate on the fact that Christ died for you.
