Hymns Of The Greek Church by John Brownlie

The wily Judas watches near

tr., John Brownlie

8,6,8,6,8,8

semeron gregorei ho Ioudas

(Antiphonon Echos barus)

III

ho autos

I

The wily Judas watches near

The Master's path to-day,

That he may into wicked hands

The Eternal Lord betray,

Who in the desert lone and dread

Supplied the multitudes with bread.

II

To-day the wicked one denies

His Teacher and his Friend --

Once a disciple, he betrays

His Master in the end.

For silver, see the Lord is sold,

Who manna gave in days of old.

To-day the Jews on Calvary

A cruel Cross have raised,

And nailed upon that Cross, their Lord

Have wickedly abased,

Who made a pathway through the sea

And led them from captivity.

IV

To-day the spear is lifted high

And thrust into His side,

Who for His people raised His hand

And wounded Egypt's pride;

They give Him vinegar and gall,

Who showered down manna on them all.
