Man on a Cross
Parody of "Man in a Box" by Alice in Chains
(Luke 23:39-43; Romans 6:6; Galatians 2:20)

I am a man on a cross perishin' in my sin
Won't You kindly save me, please save me
Please, I cry -- can You show me love?
Jesus Christ -- can I be saved, sir?
He replies -- you'll be with Me
In Paradise -- now you're goin' up

High on a cross with this thief struck for those in sin
Won't You kindly save me, please save me
See that sky -- Heaven's opened up
Jesus Christ -- Divine Redeemer
He who dies -- will be raised yet
We will rise -- now we're goin' up

See me I'm crucified death for both of us
(With) Jesus Christ we died together
Read between the lines in Galatians
He redeemed my life -- now we're goin' up

Galatians 2:20
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
