I Swung The Hammer

I see Judas lead the guards,
then kiss Jesus on the cheek.
I say to myself: Oh what deceit! I follow Peter to the courtyard,
see him warm his hands by the fire.
He denied Jesus! Oh what a liar. I hear the howling mob:
Crucify Him! Crucify Him!!
As Pilate says: Don't blame me!
Oh what a coward he must be. I watch the Centurion swing the hammer,
and hear Jesus' agonizing cries.
