Crucifixion

image

The cruellest death
Endured for me,
Love in action,
Shown unconditionally.

Spikes between bones,
Thorns on his head,
Stripped and whipped,
Deserted by friends.
Christ of the Heavens,
Lord-God-become-man
In a life-changing plan
To die for me.
Did he scream, did he shout?
Did he really not feel pain?
As the sword pierced his side
And the life-blood drained out.

Why did a man hung on a cross
Pay so dearly for me?
Suffocation for Salvation –
Why did a man hung on a cross
Die willingly for me?
