The Cross – 1. The Garden

Gethsemane

The rented room fills slowly,
As the friends gather.
The servant washes feet,
The King breaks bread, passes wine,
They eat, they drink,
A man slips quietly away.

A walk to a garden,
Prayer, a plea,
A clatter of armour, soldiers
A kiss, an arrest.
Trial, perjury and conviction,
Punishment and flogging.

Next: 2. The Hill
