    When Satan possessed his heart,
    Then Judas sold Christ at mart
    For silver they gave,
    The price of a slave.

    Though Jesus had washed his feet
    And offered him bread to eat,
    His false-hearted kiss
    Betrayed him for this.

    As innocent blood was shed,
    He tied his own noose and, dead,
    Was better unborn
    Than hanging in scorn!

    From Judas, O Lord, we see
    Betrayal of you would be
    A choking of breath
    More deadly than death.
