Running from the Cross

Not wanting to believe
awful truth before me
words in the upper room
too hard to handle
his prayers in the garden
too much to bear

Running away, that night
the guards coming for Jesus
my shepherd taken away
what am I to do
Running from the cross
his crown made of thorns
the Messiah, not a king
to die upon the cross
