Porter Wagoner – Thirty Pieces Of Silver lyrics

It's a sad but true story from the Bible it came
And it tells us how Judas solved the Saviour in shame
He planed with the counsel of high priest that day
Thirty pieces of silver was the price they would pay
(Thirty pieces of silver thirty shekels of shame
Was the price paid for Jesus on the cross he was slain
Betrayed and forsaken unloved and unclaimed
In anger they pierced him but he died not in vain)
Twas there on the hilllside the multitude came
And found our dear Saviour then took him away
They smote him and they mocked him torn the crown round his head
And his rainment of purple showed the blood stains of red
Far off in the mountain with face toward the sun
Judas begged for mercy for what he had done
He gave back the silver for his heart filled with strife
And there in the mountain he took his own life
(Thirty pieces of silver thirty shekels of shame
Was the price paid for Jesus on the cross he was slain)
