Betrayal - Poem by M S Latter

Told I would betray
I shared the bread anyway,
I drank the wine
And spilt the blood divine.

I said I wouldn't betray,
I ran as Christ was led away.
In the court of the high priest
I was spotted by the least;
I raged and cursed and swore,
I denied my Lord three times before
The cock did crow -
And Jesus turned and looked at me;
I fled the night and wept bitterly.

But Jesus called me the rock
And my sin will not make me stop.


Told I would betray
I shared the bread anyway,
I drank the wine
And spilt the blood divine.

With a kiss so I did betray
And danced as Christ was led away;
But purity of Him, myself I do so hate
And threw the silver at the temple gate.

I hate those words Peter,
Forget forgiveness, death is sweeter -
The rope has torn my skin,
A tree will now hang my sin.
