6 The Betrayal (Matthew 26. 45-50)

Gm Dsus D

Gm F Gm Cm/G Gm

Now the darkness gathers, rise Son of man take your stand,

F Gm Cm D7 Gm F Gm

You are alone, they were sleeping, Forces of death are at hand.

Gm F Gm Cm/G Gm

See the one who leads them, once followed you day by day,

F Gm Cm D7 Gm F Gm

He has betrayed you for silver, soon they will lead you away.

Gm F Gm Cm/G Gm

Can you see him smiling? Draws near to you with a kiss!

F Gm Cm D7 Gm F Gm

“Judas, my friend, don’t betray me, with such a sign as this!”

Am G Am Dm/A Am

“I’m the one you’re seeking, now put your swords away!

G Am Dm E7 Am G Am

I see the cup is now ready, shall I not drink it today?
