1 In anguish Jesus prayed alone
the night he was betrayed;
and Judas marked him with a kiss
to keep the bargain made.
Then Jesus, taken under guard,
was questioned and accused;
the chief priests said he was to blame,
and Jesus was abused.
2 They sent him on to Pilate's court,
for Pilate was the judge;
in Jesus he could find no fault,
despite the chief priests' grudge.
The people clamored for his death
and would not be denied;
so Pilate, yielding to their cry,
hand Jesus crucified.
3 The soldiers wove a crown of thorns
and placed it on his head.
They dressed him in a purple cloak –
"Your Jewish king," they said.
They nailed him to a Roman cross,
a bandit on each side;
betrayed, forsaken, mocked, and scorned,
he breathed his last – and died.
