GUILTY OF LOVE

Author Unknown

Judas led the soldiers to the garden where He prayed
Jesus was arrested by the ones He came to save
Swords and clubs and angry words were coming from all sides
Jesus only saw the broken hearts of his accusers that night

He was guilty of compassion
For the lonely and the weak
Guilty of forgiving
And setting prisoners free
Guilty of believing
The highest price was not too much
But most of all
The sinless lamb of God
Was guilty of love

Pilate said of Jesus, “I find no fault in this man”
Still the crowd said, “Crucify!” and would not understand
Pilate washed his hands, and then he set Barabbas free
Jesus was their only hope, 

But they were too hard-hearted to see

He was guilty of compassion
For the lonely and the weak
Guilty of forgiving
And setting prisoners free
Guilty of believing
The highest price was not too much
But most of all
The sinless lamb of God
Was guilty of love


Love that sees the best inside the worst of us
Love that did what no one would have done
He paid with his own blood

Oh, what love

He was guilty of compassion
For the lonely and the weak
Guilty of forgiving
And setting prisoners free
Guilty of believing
The highest price was not too much
But most of all
The sinless lamb of God
Was guilty of love
