New Testament

John Chapter 18


Jesus led His chosen ones o'er the Cedron brook
To a garden; but Judas, with armed men, Him took!
Angry, Peter cut off the right ear of Malchus
(A servant of the High Priest) but t'was healed by Jesus.
To Annas, dad-in-law to High Priest Caiaphas
Thence bound to Caiaphas himself they took Jesus.
Meanwhile, Peter (smuggled in Caiaphas' palace
By another disciple) with fear and malice
Thrice denied knowing Christ - the cock crew the last time!
Jesus was led to the Hall of Judgement for crime,
Where Roman Pilate, questioning, found no fault, so
Would've freed Him for Barabbas, but a mob cried "no"!
