Pilate Before the Christ
Pilate, how pathetic,
as you bend your will to sin,
a pleaser of the people,
giving in to every whim.
Priests hold your feet to fire
as you gaze at God’s own Son.
Do you know your name lives on here
when your life on earth is done?
Look upon the face of Jesus.
See beyond the surging crowd.
Shut out the screaming voices,
so demanding, coarse, and loud.
Still your questions, and step closer
to the One who stands accused.
Feel the power of His Presence.
Will you ‘I AM’ refuse?
O Pilate, can your palace walls
protect you from yourself?
Shall your eternal soul be saved
by earthly fame and wealth?
Before you dip your hands into
delusion’s soothing bowl,
consider now the price you’ll pay—
the losing of your soul!
