Judas

Judas, Judas, didn't you know From the cross, forgiveness flows Upon yourself you brought much strife In betrayal, you ended your own life Judas, Judas how many shall follow Turning their backs, for a better tomorrow God's not in it, only their greed That better tomorrow, their dirty deeds Judas, Judas, they sit among God's own Taking the communion with a heart of stone They trade the love of a savior so dear To fill their pockets and walk in fear Judas, Judas, they walk in deceit As scripture their tongues so proudly speak Deceiving a world, headed for disaster But they will never deceive the Holy Master Judas, Judas, in their wisdom they will fall As they miss the hour, the midnight call In man's steps they will continue to follow Hell holds a place for their better tomorrow Judas, Judas they are seated among the dead In a fiery hell, they will lift their heads With their words leading many astray To stand in judgment that final day Judas, Judas for silver they traded their soul Never to walk upon the streets of gold They strip Jesus and mock him in shame To their own understanding, God is to blame Judas, Judas the nails continually driven in Through the professed church and its sin They will follow man to the end of the earth In return an eternity of hell is birthed Judas, Judas it is sad to see Why didn't you and they trust in He A hell where fire is everlasting Will swallow many with their own understanding Judas, Judas, why did you stray Didn't you know, Jesus is the way Now in hell you lift your eyes Where the soul of greed never dies Judas, Judas if you could only speak To a lost world truly in need I am sure from hell you would say Lay down the world, or your soul will pay Judas, Judas, Jesus loved you so Above all this you should know To fall from His amazing grace Never to look upon redemptions face Written by: Donetta Harless Thursday July 21, 2016
