White, Black & Blue

White are the clouds scurrying by
White was the robe that Jesus wore
Black was the scowl on Judas' face
Black were the thoughts within him race.
Blue were the stripes on Jesus' back
Red were the blooddrops down His cheeks
White was the anger in Peter's cries

White, Black & Blue

Blue was the remorse in Peter's heart
Black was the day that Jesus died
White were the cheeks of sorrowing Mary
Black was the night enclosed in the tomb
White were the Angels telling good news
Jesus is risen! is risen indeed!
