Now The Judas Is Me

No one loves a Judas
Neither did I
Now it is plain to see
Now the Judas is me
How do I live with the hurt my betrayal has caused?
The lives I have changed because of me
I am flawed
Arenít we all?
Maybe it was always dormant in me
Waiting for the moment to strike
The moment of decision
Changing the course of life
Judas made his choice for 30 pieces of silver
The cost of my betrayal was greater
Was Judas predestined to betray?
Was this also mine?
Just a little talk with Jesus won't make this right
Too much wrong to undo
Is there mercy and grace?
Or forever disgrace?
Judas could not unbreak what he had broken
Nor remove the bitter kiss of a traitor
Judas didnít have to betray
His weakness opened the door
Others betrayed Christ too
Peter denied and the rooster crowed
The rest hid for their lives
Our Savior still forgave
Restored them again
Judas could have been forgiven
He never gave Christ a chance
His could have been the greatest story of all
An example of Godís love and grace
Instead he chose to hang himself on a tree
Tree of guilt over the power of the cross
No one loves a Judas
Now is Godís love not for me?
The betrayer
The adulterer
The one guilty of causing the pain
So many judges
Judas deserves his punishment
Doesnít John 3:16 also apply the Judas
Whosoever doesnít discriminate
Judas knows what he has done
He either lives with the guilt
Or hangs himself on his tree
Judges can have their way with me
Trying to force me to hang on my own tree
I know I am the chiefest of all sinners
But one thing I do know
He still loves me
Not the deeds I have done
Disappointments as a son
Failures as a man
Flawed human that I am
Judas is the example of undeserving love
Now that Judas is me
