The weight of all our sins
On the shoulders of just One,
The heavy anvil in his heart
Would feel much like a ton.
Intense prayers in a garden
As His friends would fall asleep,
The sweat drops now turn to blood
As the minutes now would creep.
A bounty paid in silver
The payoff to betray,
A "kiss"then taken rudely
And roughly dragged away.
No prisoners rights were spoken
By righteous men of law,
Pushed and given to leaders
With a hatred oh so raw.
Alone in a charged fools court
No lawyer at His side.
A jury of angry people ruled
While friends deny and hide.
Rejection so deep and hurtful
To an open heart filled with love,
The prophets words now echo
From sad heavens high above.
No one called out for "mercy"
As whips found flesh and bone,
The ones he loved screamed "crucify"
As He stood there all alone.
So cross beams of rough wood
Would lean on his torn back,
The spit flowed out like streams
From the crowds verbal attack.
Violently flailed and nailed
On a strecher of dirty wood,
His blood drops grant forgiveness
As only One in history could.
This haunting journey now over
His rising makes us new,
Our loneliness He fills with love
Forgiveness for us fools!
