THE TRAITOR




Oh Judas! How couldst thou betray
The Lord who gave thee life and breath;
And see the Saviour fall a prey
To suffering, shame, reproach and death!


The solemn vows are now forgot,
And sacred friendship all abused;
But Christ foreknew the treacherous plot,
Nor the deceitful kiss refused.


How could the wretch unmoved survey,
A face sp lovely and divine;
How such a friend of friends betray,
Whose acts to him were all benign!


Haunted with grief and deadly fear,
He mourns the vile transaction done;
But all is vain, when black despair
O’erwhelms his soul, and heaven is gone.


Lord, while I tremble at his fall,
Oh let me not his course pursue;
Be thou my love, my all in all,
To thee may I be ever true!
