Temporary Trinkets

He was traded for thirty pieces of silver

Temporary trinkets that didn’t even make him quiver

A kiss of deception, a shameful transgression

Paved the way of Christ’s most difficult procession

 

We were traded for three days of innocent torment

An eternal collision of grace and selfless punishment

A cry of rejection, the death of Perfection

Paved the way of mankind’s most needed salvation

 

We are all just temporary trinkets

Striving to gain value through earthly merits

How futile an objective that does not reciprocate

To live for the world is a path to hate

 

For the man without eyes

For those who have to hide

For the orphan who cries

We must lose our pride

 

For the day is coming

When there will be nothing

Will we forsake the lost?

We must carry our cross!

 

For the woman sold into slavery

For those without hope or bravery

For the offspring targets of parental fury

We must gain new urgency

 

For the days are coming

When there will be nothing

Will we forsake the lost?

We must carry our cross!

 

We are all just temporary trinkets

Striving to gain value through earthly merits

How futile an objective that does not reciprocate

To live for the world is a path to hate

 

To live for the King…

Is everything.
