Into The Night

Things come to a head

They always do

Jesus in Jerusalem

Trouble stirs anew

Judas takes the piece of bread

Bread we are meant to share

And goes away into the night

Into the cold dark air


Ukraine land of wheat and sunflower oil

Land of living bread

Land of bitter fighting

So many now lie dead

Land upon the dividing line

Here the East meets West

Here the powers fight it out

Ukraine is merely guest


Jesus is about to leave

Lord where are you going?

Out into Gethsemane

Beyond that there is no knowing

You – you cannot follow me

You must stay and watch

From a distance helplessly

All loveliness is scorched
