Knowing These People

Praying in the garden
knowing these people
oh so well
all of humanity the same

Christ praying in the garden
choosing the cup of suffering
while we yet sin
his sacrifice for us

Knowing we will betray him
reject and despise him
that we would deny our God
and run away from him

Yet there in the garden
Christ, though he was human,
choosing to suffer for us
that we may live again
