Betray the Christ?
Yes, for a price.
I have this need,
This inner greed.
I follow him,
But worship me.

He’s strong—too strong!
Am I so wrong?
I’ll show the place,
Then kiss his face.
I follow him,
But worship me.

I’ll fake a smile
To hide my guile.
You’ll have your man.
Just trust my plan.
I follow him,
But worship me.

...Judas came, one of the twelve, and with him a crowd with swords and clubs, from the chief priests and the scribes and the elders. Now the betrayer had given them a sign, saying, “The one I will kiss is the man. Seize him and lead him away under guard.” And when he came, he went up to him at once and said, “Rabbi!” And he kissed him. And they laid hands on him and seized him. (Mark 14:43-46 ESV)
