Peter's Lament

Midnight comes quickly, my Teacher in chains
Up to the slaughter, He walks as a lamb
Fear overtakes me, and in my moment of truth
Three times I curse, "I never knew this man"

Jesus has heard me, and He looks into my eyes
I said I would die before I'd dare to flee
Now with the sinners will He be judged
But hanging from that cross is where I should be

Passion has failed me, strength has abandoned
I have denied my Maker and Friend
Burdens surround me, my tears overwhelm
The Lord of the heavens, I would not defend

The earth falls silent, the Lord rests in the cave
But early that morning the stone was rolled away
Joy embraces me, what wonderful news
My pardon was purchased by Jesus today!
