Thirty Pieces of Silver



© 2014 John Paul Taylor Jr.

He was one of the twelve originals
And Judas was his name
Many others lived courageously
But his story’s not the same

He started out loyal and true
With Jesus as his guide
But there came a day
When he would betray
The Son of
The Most High

And for thirty pieces of silver
He sold out Jesus Christ
For thirty pieces of silver
He identified
And they crucified, Jesus Christ

It was after the last supper
In the garden where He went to pray
They were there, Jesus and the others
And it happened like they’d heard Him say

Judas came with many men
To capture Jesus in that place
And when he greeted Him
They arrested Him
He had sealed
Jesus’ fate

For thirty pieces of silver
He showed them who Jesus was
For thirty pieces of silver
He identified
And they crucified, Jesus Christ

And for thirty pieces of silver
He sold out Jesus Christ
For thirty pieces of silver
He identified

And they crucified, Jesus Christ
