About "Take Me Down"

This is my latest song which was inspired after seeing a video of Archbishop Fulton Sheen where he talks about the devil. At the close of the talk he tells hearing our Lord’s cries and how he responded.

    TAKE ME DOWN 

And I woke in the dead of night
To woeful cries of anguish and pain
And I rose from my bed
And in haste searched outside
There You were, crucified
Your cross framed by the moonlit sky

In distress I called your name
What can I do to ease your pain
So I tried to take you down

To remove the nails that held You bound
Until You said “Let them be
For I cannot be freed
‘Til every man, woman and child
Come to take me down
Come to take me down"

In the quiet of the waning day
Again I heard your anguished cries
What can I do my Lord I prayed
For I cannot bear to see You this way
And then I heard “Tell the world of Me
For I am waiting to be freed
Let them know there’s a man on a cross
Come and take me down
All come and take me down"
