Truth Tellings



Tune: Louvan

('Lord of all being, throned afar')

John 18 v.34-38

*********

John's Gospel Series (23)

 

Pilate called Jesus at His trial

Speak to me, speak a little while

Are you the King of the Jews, yes?

Will you now unto me confess?

 

Jesus said, My kingdom, it is

Not of this world, see here, see this

If my kingdom of this world ere

My servants would fight, their hearts stir

 

Would fight so that I would not be

Delivered to the Jews, this see

But now my kingdom it be not

Worldly, but a heavenly lot

 

Pilate then said, Are you a king?

Jesus said, You says so, does ring

True, for to this end I was born

Upon that incarnation morn

 

To this end and for this cause I

Came into the world, not deny

That I should bear witness unto

The truth, and the Father's will do

 

Everyone that of the truth is

Hears my voice, and does not it miss

Pilate said, What is truth? and he

[Was] Assured Jesus innocent be

    THANKS UNCLE STEVE ~ I knew the tune but not the lyric ! However it is set up for karaoke ~ at the Bible study tomorrow ~ we shall sing along ! Love the pathos in the Poem.

    JESUS is standing in PILATES HALL
    Cold & Lonely despised by ALL
    Heark but there cometh a sudden call
    WHAT WILL YOU DO WITH JESUS ?
    Neutral You cannot be
    Someday Your heart will be asking
    WHAT WILL HE DO WITH ME !

    YOURS AS ALWAYS ~ BRIAN
