lyrics

Maundy Thursday

Remember this sacrificial lamb
Remember this living bread
With it falter all the damned
All our misery and dread

And drink your wine, but remember the blood
From which that gift did come
Remember the pact that was made with God
When my judgement sees me done

The shepherd will be hunted down
The flock it will be spread
Galilee will see once more my crown
Resurrected from the dead

Peter refused to believe the words he spake
And said out loud and clear
If I have to die for my brother's sake
I'll do it now and here

But at the first of the rooster's crows
Peter said: “I understand not”
At the second crow, his weakness did grow
“No, I know him not”

But worse yet, it was that night
The priests knew, it was too late
It turned out Jesus was just right
A kiss did seal his fate

By one betrayed, by one bereft
For money and from fear
Captured by soldiers, no one left
To shout: “flee, over here!”

A gruesome and babaric tale
Would turn to celebration
The pharasees, oh they did fail
The prohpecy swept the nation
