THAT BITTER CUP

Jesus cried, “My God, My God why hast Thou forsaken Me?”

Gabriel wept a waterfall!  He could barely see!

“My Lord,” he sobbed, “It is because you are full of sin!”

The Father cannot look on sin, now you are that sin!

.

.

Remember how you saw man’s sins as in a filthy cup?

In the garden as you prayed, tempted to give up?

But then you drank that bitter cup because You knew God’s will!

The only way to save mankind and so you suffer still!

.

.

How I wish, my Friend, that I could die there in Your place.

Could take the spear, the thorns, the nails, and the disgrace,

But sadly now we know that You alone can be the One,

Fulfilling scripture; “Lamb of God…God’s beloved Son.”

.

.

It will not be long we will meet again, My Master, My King!

In three days you will arise again all heaven then will sing

And mankind their reaction, many ransomed ones

Rejoice together evermore as God’s beloved sons!

.

.

Great place for the Hallelujah Chorus.
