In Christ Alone #easter #poetry

Who faithful carries burdens

who in love bore the cross

only one God’s Son

willingly paid the price

sin a heavy anchor

none can loose its chains

but by the eternal victor

 you are free from pain

why walk bent and broken

you can be set free

what a loving forfeit

Christ’s death on Calvary

*

Sins willingly bore

Risen no grave could hold

Jesus paid sin’s price

 

 

Broken Egg #happyeaster #poetry

 

broken egg

All the king’s horses

All the king’s men

couldn’t put anything

together again

Here I lie broken

listless and cracked

there’s one who has risen

will take the world back

So I look to the cross

He will set all wrongs right

today He has risen

there’s love in His light

*

Doubt in the darkness

son breaks through world’s clouds

Easter dawns with HOPE

sun on cross

A Dark Day #Maundythursday

forest path

up a path fraught with malice

the dear savior walked

bearing pain human suffering

ugly jeers, rocks were tossed

love welled in His heart

for the lost, you and me

suffering He bore all sin

left on Calvary’s tree

cross

“He was despised and rejected2 by men;

a man of sorrows,3 and acquainted with4 grief;5

and as one from whom men hide their faces6

he was despised, and we esteemed him not.”

Isaiah 53:3

Darkest Hour

rocks and cross

through the darkest hour
every tree top in the forest
adorned with a star
                 (Ese)

 

the earth quaked in sorrow

man had crucified God’s Son

 

Good Friday is a day that the earth mourns the death of bright hope.  This supreme sacrifice was intended to set the prisoners free from the shackles of sin. And so we celebrate with misty tears the dark day when Love died.
