Gathering Shadows

The words of the master
changing the Seder
words of the night before
of his suffering and dying
all too real on the morrow
the new day turned to night

The gathering shadows
evil stalking the savior
the powerful corrupt
sending our Lord to the cross

Darkness at noon
in the darkening shadows
the sky turned to night
the sun refusing to shine
while our master hung there dying
the light of the world
heading for the stone cold tomb
