None Should Deny

 

The chosen time is near

Twelve disciples begin to fear

‘Betrayer’ one is to be named

That kiss of ‘a friend’ forever famed

 

He dipped his hand into the bowl

Turned his heart and lost his soul

Away from the Son of Man now torn

Better for him if he’d never been born

 

The broken bread is held on high

The Body of Jesus none should deny

In the cup of wine, the forgiveness of sin

Thanks given to God – they sang a hymn

 

Then out to the Mount where the olives grew

But abandonment was coming, this Jesus knew

And yet He would lay down his life for all

Knowing joy set before Him, He obeyed the call.
