Stripped Away



“The Shepherd will be struck,

And His sheep will scatter.”


Stripped away,

Torn limb from limb,

Naked left, with none

To cover Him.


“The Shepherd will be struck,

And His sheep will scatter.”


His own slept

While He cried,

And thirty silvers

Was the bribe.


“The Shepherd will be struck,

And His sheep will scatter.”


Push came to sword

They more than flew,

And where they hid

Nobody knew.


“The Shepherd will be struck,

And His sheep will scatter.”


Even Peter lied

Before twice a crow,

And in the dark

His face did not show.


“The Shepherd will be struck,

And His sheep will scatter.”


Not yet all alone

‘Til Abba turned away,

And there hanging,

Nothing more to say.


“The Shepherd will be struck,

And His sheep will scatter.”


Our Redeemer

Was torn as well,

So our sin, too

Could go to hell.


“The Shepherd will be struck,

And His sheep will scatter.”


And the young man’s cloth

That covered his nakedness,

When others did lay hold

Was finally stripped away.




Mark 14:10-15:34
