The Betrayer Prowling the Night

In the darkness, the garden
the betrayer prowling the night
time running down
praying, sleep heavy
staking the garden
the tester challenging

Alone, our master,
a little farther on
pouring out his heart
his inner anguish
sweat like blood
falling heavy
crying out to God

Our salvation assured
in his strength, resolve,
his choosing of servanthood
humbly, to the will of God
Prayers in the darkness
while the betrayer prowled the night.
