He took your bread and went out-out-out

“As soon as Judas had taken the bread, he went out. And it was night” John 13:30

He took your bread and didn’t wait for the drink

He went out

And it was night

…yet he betrayed you…

Dear Lord, I have taken your bread

Patiently I received your drink

Help my soul

Do not let 'the door' open unto me

I want to remain in here with you

No! I don’t want to go out

I mean go out


And it is dark

I might miss the way

Help would be far fetched

I don’t want to dash my feet

Against the stones of cares of this world

I don’t want to fall into the pit

That is hidden from the naked eyes

I don’t want to drown in the sea of pressure

I don’t want to be at the mercy of leisure

that comes with pleasure of this world

No! I don’t want its ride that Judas rode

Judas went out and he never returned, never ever

Lord don’t, don’t let me go-o-o-o-o

You prayed for Peter and things went better

Though it was later but he became greater

    Oh, ‘Mercy said no

    I'm not going to let you go

    I'm not going to let you slip away

    you don't have to be afraid

    mercy said no’

Hey! Judas slipped and slumped

Slipped of tongue till his feet slipped

He slipped, slipped and slipped till his life spilled

He went out just like Dinah

"And Dinah the daughter of Leah, which she bare unto Jacob, went out to see the daughters of the land. 2 And when Shechem the son of Hamor the Hivite, prince of the country, saw her, he took her, and lay with her, and defiled her." Gen. 34:1-2

Judas and Dinah went out

Out of divine coverage

Out of divine protection

Out of divine provision

Out of divine network

Out of divine instruction

Out of divine guidance and ordinance

He went out-out-out. Oh! Judas why?
