How could you?” I gasped when I first learned of you.
Whoever heard of Jesus for Jews?
“How could you betray us with that hated name
That brought to our people for centuries shame?
That name so uplifted to cast us to Hell,
To curse us and kill us, evict and expel?
How dare you embrace that name so despised,
Disgrace us, deface us ‘neath Heaven’s own eyes?”
Till I met him too and knew he was of us
That he had endured too the flames of false wolves
That he is Messiah and God’s Word holds true.
“How could you,” I now gasp, “not tell me of you?”
