Lyrics: There Was a Time

Lyrics: There Was a Time

A Poem by Rose Diamond
"

I'm writing this for a play about the Passion of the Christ, and it's supposed to be from Judas's point of view after the Crucifixion (or after the sentencing).

"
There was a time when I was a man
I was kind, I was loved by them
There was a time when my soul felt free
But now darkness has come over me

He was divine, had loved with no end
The honor was mine to call Him my friend
There was a time when He believed in me
But I had failed and for what? Tainted money

What have I done?
What will I do?
Am I worthy to ask
forgiveness from you-?

No
It cannot be
Even I can't ask forgiveness
From me

There was a time
When I was a man
But now I
Must put that to an end-

If I can't seek forgiveness
If I can't find the light
Tell me what is the purpose
Of living this life?

I'm sorry
For I have sinned
But from now on
I'll never sin
Again-

Author's Note

In case you didn't see, this is a song I wrote for a play about the Passion of the Christ (Jesus's death) from Judas's point of view. If you're not Christian, I hope you'll still critique in an entirely artistic way.

nicely done, I had it flowing like a folk song in my head, but thats just me, refreshing lyrics that are not the typical gloom and doom boy rues girl.
