Fleeing in the Darkness

So many other choices
a range of other outcomes
what he could have done
in that moment of decision
at what a cost for us

If he had changed his answers
appeasing the authorities
or running fleeing in the darkness
in that moment of decision
at what a cost for us

Instead, praying in the garden
waiting for the betrayer
praying humbly to God
asking that the cup could pass him by
but submitting to his will

Choosing to stay
to take on the suffering
the lamb choosing to sacrifice
to go the way of the cross
that we may live
