MAN OF SORROWS

But He was wounded for our transgressions,

Bruised for our iniquities.

Surely He bore our sorrows and

With His stripes we are healed!

.

.

It was a cross they nailed Him to

Spikes through hands and feet!

Crown on His head!  Sure of thorns!

Why?  What did He do?

.

.

Crucifixion just for criminals!

Of the very worst kind!

Robbers, killers, delighting in it!

Living only by crime!

.

.

This man’s crime?  He claims to be God!

Yes, many miracles to prove,

Raised a dead man, “Lazarus!  Come forth!”

The Pharisees would not move!

.

.

A threat to their sanctimony was He!

Their proud hypocrisy!

“Straining out gnats to swallow camels…”

Jesus’ words matched their greed!

.

.

They crucified the very Son Of God!

‘Very’ God in the flesh!

“Let Him come down from there, if He is God!”

Then they buried the dead!

.

.

“What?  Alive?  This cannot be true!”

Disciples hid Him away!

Over 500 saw Him alive!

Nothing more could they say!

.

.

What ever happened to the Pharisees?

Disciples joy knew no bounds!

“Tarried” (waited) as Christ commanded,

Christianity compounds!

.

.

A mighty Army, a force today!

Still growing in distant lands,

Reason?  Disciples, His followers,

Obedience to His command!

.

.
