SHADOW OF THE CROSS

Can you see Jesus’ shadow out there?

Forming a cross on the sod?

Think He knew that He would suffer and die?

For every man’s sins, as God?

.

.

Suppose that this boy growing up,

Sensed that His freedom to live

Would be curtailed in His prime,

With nothing at all to give?

.

.

Think that as He fed multitudes,

The thousands seated out there,

He knew before that crucifixion,

Would shorten His life so fair?

.

.

Would temptation to flee such suffering,

His human right contained,

Like overthrew the prophecy,

So that man in sin remained.

.

.

Would a loving God succumb to such

Temptation?  Think, humanity,

Lose self in some deserted cave?

Forget about you and me?

.

.

The Savior’s ever consuming love,

Would not be constrained!

Or cause any forgetfulness,

Suspect to a Savior’s name!

.

.

He came to save us!  Carry our sins,

All of them!  To that hanging!

Can such fortitude again be found,

By spikes, holding there dangling?

.

.

I think not!  Till the death, finally!

Brings a sighing end

Continuous!  Suffering!  Such

To make other human bend!

.

.

But did He bend, give in, to sin?

We all know, He did not!

Savoir of all people!  Sinless I see!

No sin could ever blot!

.

.

Sinless!  So that He could forgive!

.
