THE GRACE

Jesus, God, did you have to go

To Calvary to die,

“My God, My GOD!  You have forsaken Me!”

And did He not thus cry?

.

.

Broken in spirit, forsaken by all!

By heaven forsaken besides!

“Why hast thou?”  Your silence contends

Does no one hear My cries?

.

.

Yes, my mother and one disciple

With Mary of Magdala,

Those tender tears and broken hearts.

Other disciples?  Far?

.

.

Yes, off to Galilee, a fishing,

And have you caught anything?

This pain!  Excruciating the pain!

So try the other side–

.

.

Of the boat, oh certain.  Where they are

Oh, the pain!  Why, oh why

Father God, must I contend?

This cross alone?  My cry!

.

.

My human cry!  Can not you hear it?

Has all caring departed?

Your silence, does it forecast displeasure?

Please, where have we parted?

.

.

Forgive!  Did we share tender moments?

I grieved for Judas, you know.

Son of perdition, did he have to be?

But suicide?  Oh, why so?

.

.

Soul, now in that terrible place,

Torture!  Why must this be?

My children, am I Your child, still?

But bit of humanity!

.

.

Pain!  Now, I thirst, all dried out!

Harder to take breath!

Oh, may I now “Give up the ghost”?

I am longing for death!

.

.

********REMEMBERING********

.

Now His words, a time:

“I go to prepare a place.”

Sure, we truly follow You now!

We are drawn there by your Grace!
