Posts Tagged ‘WHO KILLED THE KING OF GLORY?’

Judas did the most evil deed.

He’s guilty of greed, so guilty of greed.

“O what thirty pieces won’t buy;

I gain – so what, if the Innocent die.”

The priests and elders paid no heed,

When he returned silver to plead.

v2          

Big-league Jews in highest places,

Sat in judgment with sin-hardened faces.

“What! Need we any further proof,

He has claimed Sonship – how awfully aloof!”

The priestly-proud, on wrong basis,

Slew the Meek with all His graces.

v3          

With clanging steel on arm and chin,

Military might struck His royal skin.

“Who is it that smote?” cried the wrong.

“Hail King” mocked and lied the smart, “super-strong,”

Then lead they Him, Who knew no sin,

And nailed Him with a Roman “pin.”

C.

But who really killed the King of Glory,

Was it Judas with his kiss? Jewish leaders so amiss?

Roman soldiers with their fists?

It was ME with all my greed. It was my religious pride.

My self-reliance brought the deed,

And for my sins He was crucified.

– eab, 6/4/84
