Peter, His disciple
Wore three denials.
Coins for flesh, sold on a whim
Bought nothing more than a cup of wind.
Judas’s hands, couldn’t win
Such meager coins, in exchange for Him.
A poison kiss, for the One within.
Free Barrabas! — to appease the mob.
A murdering rapist, for the Son of God.
Now Jesus Christ, renders His life
For the forgiveness of sin.
