This day judge of all judges stood bowing down at

Tribunal to re-lease us

From our debts and He suffered all  perse-cution

And mockings  from  wicked  men …               Kurialaison

 

2.   May those who seek my life  be disgraced and put to shame;  may those who plot my ruin be turned back  in  dismay.

Cruci-fy  Thy  on the cross

Traitors asked for release of  thief  Barabbas  and

Asked  for  Crucify-ing   Lord              Kurialaison

 

 

3.  May their path be dark and slippery, with the angel of the LORD pursuing them. Since they hid their net  for me without cause and without cause dug a pit for me .  May ruin overtake them by surprise-- may the net they hid entangle them, may they fall into the pit,  to their ruin.

 

 

This day Jesus was  showered with spit by the Jews

To give  Adam  Para-dise

To absolve our servitude of sinful nature

Servants beat  Thy on Thy cheek            Kurialaison

 

4. Ruthless witnesses come forward; they question me on things I know nothing about. They repay me evil for good  and leave my soul forlorn.

This day Disciples cooled down their loyalty Lord

They  started running a-way

Lord of truth was left alone for persecutions

In the midst  of  wi-cked men           Kurialaison

 

5. But when I stumbled, they gathered in glee;  attackers gathered against me when I was unaware. They slandered  me without ceasing. 16 Like the ungodly they maliciously mocked , they gnashed their teeth  at me.

This day  Jews cried out to Pilate to crucify

One who breaks all  Moses  laws

Crucify the one who breaks the laws of  Sabbath

And misguide the crowd at large ….       Kurialaison
