They took him down to Golgotha,

to Golgotha, the place of skulls;

they set him in between two thieves

and hurled disease on him.

 

They struck his face and speared his side

at Golgotha, at Golgotha;

they called him king and laughed at him

and cursed him on the tree.

 

The earth, it shook at Golgotha,

at Golgotha, the place of skulls;

the dead arose, the sky was dead

and soldiers stared at him.

 

They said he was the Son of God,

at Golgotha, at Golgotha;

he bled and died at Golgotha,

accursed, upon a tree.
