Twilight

Mary Magdalene

Through the twilight at midday,

I watched a man’s life slip away.

I helped him not, nor gave him care.

I simply watched him hanging there.

Through the twilight at midday,

I watched a man’s life slip away.

Through the crowd in darkest night

I did not speak, nor shine the light

of Truth on lies condemning him.

I listened, hid, saved life and limb

And through the crowd in darkest night

I did not speak, nor shine a light.

On that morning, dreary-cold,

I followed soldiers, grim and bold,

Who beat the man who’d done no wrong

While I hid there, among the throng

On that morning, dreary-cold,

I followed soldiers, grim and bold.

Through the twilight at midday,

I watched a man’s life slip away.

He saved me from the ones that lied,

And I watched Him be crucified.

Through the twilight at midday,

I watched my Lord’s life slip away.
