No Other Way (Easter Day Rhyme)

A Poem by Chris Yip
"

A song based on the same tune of the No other way song

No   Other   W ay

                           (EASTER   D AY    RHYME)

            

                       You    died    for    us,    that    fateful    day,


   You    said    you    had,    no    other    way,   


Your    tortured    flesh,    the    price    to    pay,


   Your    blood    will    wash,   our    sins    away,


And,    I    saw    them,    do - ing    foul - play,


   A " bused,    you    had,   no - thing    to    say,


They    left    you    like    broken    red    clay,


  They    were    fools,    just    out    for    play,


Lost    in    sin,    and    gone    astray,

 

  They    brought    you    down    with - out    delay,


Entombed    a - lone    your    body    lay,


  Your    mother    cried,    with    deep    dismay,


Be    strong    and    brave,   for    come    what    may,


  Three    days,    no    hope,    hard - ly    a   ray,


I    think,    I’ll    check,    on    you    to - day,


  Sur " prised    I    find,     there’s    no    decay,


You’ve    risen    up    on    a   Sun - day,


  Praise    the    lord,   I   say    hur " ray !


BRIDGE:         Sacrificed,   for   all   Mankind,   you   had,  No   Other  Way -ay

                       Sacrificed,   for   all   Mankind,   you   had,  No   Other   Way -ay

You make me wonder how you could get so many good lines, make it all end with "ay", and to top it all off, a very brilliant idea for a poem.
Amazing job, once again. Keep it up!
