In Secret and in Darkness by Raymond A. Foss

In secret, and in darkness
the storm cloud more than gathering
Christ before the Sanhedrin
scheming to put him to death

Paying for his betrayal
a few coins of gold
what evil they had loosed
to hold on to their power

In the dark of the night
while the people slept
that Passover night
no blood on the lintels
to protect the lamb of God

Lies and false accusations
the holy truth called blasphemy
our Messiah, the king
spitting in his face
not bowing to their knees

Corrupted by their power
unable to see the law
evil in the sight of God
sentencing our savior to death

Fourth Sunday in Lent
In Secret

In secret, in darkness
the king, the powerful, plotted
seeking to hide, to extinguish
to blot out the light

Gathering, scheming
planning in secret
sending the Magi on
to find the Christ

Trying to deceive
to use the strangers
unwitting spies
to identify the child

In a dream, the plot illumined
going to their own land
led to another way

The same with the Christ-child
in a dream, a warning
the child moving in secret
the light saved for another day
