30 Pieces of Silver
   ------Hank Williams

Tis a sad but true story
From the Bible it came
And it tells us how Judas
Sold the Savior in shame
He planned with the council
Of high priest that day
30 pieces of silver
Was the price they would pay

30 pieces of silver
30 sheckles of shame
Was the price paid for Jesus
On the cross he was slain
Betrayed and forsaken
Unloved and unclaimed
In anger they pierced him
But he died not in VAIN
Twas on there on the hillside
The multitude came
And found our dear Savior
Then took him away
They bruised Him and mocked Him
Thorns were crowned around his head
And his garment of purple
Showed the blood stains of red

Far off in the mountains with his face towards the sun
Judas begged mercy for what he had done
He gave back the silver
For his heart filled with strife
Then there in the mountain he took his own life


30 pieces of silver
30 sheckles of shame
Was the price paid for Jesus
On the cross he was slain
