Judas: Blood Cries from the Ground

Judas—The Potter’s Field
Drips with the blood
Of this tree’s yield
Your Brother’s blood
It cries out—Judas—
From the ground
As in the days of Able—
The day of Cain’s betrayal.
He offered the perfect sacrifice
But yours would not suffice
And it cries from the ground
Below the burst of the noose
Where your life was bound.
Redemption was won on another tree,
—Judas—Bought by the blood of Calvary
A perfect sacrifice for eternity
He is His brother’s keeper
In this—This is His perfect chivalry
