God turned His back so as not to hear
The cries of His only Son.
He heard the cries, but could not contain
His pain until all was done.
The cries, the deep moans, what does it mean?
Just how can the pain be stilled?
Does He suffer still in heaven now?
His cup of sorrow yet filled?
How can He forget? He loved! He died!
He gave His life! Men refused!
Though He die again, it would be the same,
His Grace twice again abused!
Cannot you tell? He loved you so much,
He suffered consummate pain!
We signify an empty, empty response
So must He die again?
