The kiss of death, what brought that on?
Jesus knew they came,
As though they had already come
Predictably the same!
He knew what lay in Judas’ heart,
“Son of perdition,” he.
He did, I think, misunderstand
The sum of victory…
A zealot, victory from Rome,
Gung-ho all the way!
Like some who preach morality,
The same parade today!
You would think they had joined the Pharisees,
The priests, the scribes, the lot,
The same that Christ called hypocrites
The same that Judas bought.
As all who tried to keep the law
He worked at it and more.
The law rose high above their heads
Too late he learned the score!
Too late it was the score he learned
That Jesus died for all!
For every sin man could commit
Including Adam’s fall.
Still he could have been forgiven
But not his bitter end.
Still clinging to morality
Did not Christ call him friend?
Morality comes from within,
Once Jesus had bought in.
Morality with empathy
Compassion is the thing!
You do believe that Jesus lived
And died and rose again?
So take His Heart, the heart that counts
He has cleansed you from all sin.
Just follow Him, the walk of Grace.
You have heard the word before.
He is gracious, loving, oh so kind!
Forgives each sin and more!
More than forgive, He will help you keep from…
