VERY GOD, VERY MAN

I slept last night where Jesus slept,

My back against the wall.

Humanity passed by all night

I could not sleep at all!

.

.

Disciples slept the sound of sleep

Hung heavy in the air.

The pressures of the day recalled

The need for slumber there.

.

.

But Jesus does He not convey

A superhuman need?

A driving force He cannot shrug

To banish sin and greed?

.

.

He is very old obeying thus

The need to sacrifice

Himself upon a cross of shame

To banish sin and vice.

.

.

He is Very Man in weakness shown

Cries out!  In His despair

“Why must I drink this cup of sin?”

Let Satan take the dare!

.

.

“You are the spotless Lamb of God

Not one is without sin.

As sinless You must take man’s sin

To death without, within.”

.

.

As Very God and Very Man

The Father “hid His face,”

From sin the substitute His Son

Demonstrating thus His Grace.

.

.

So by His Grace alone we are saved (*)

Not works!  He did it all!

As Very Man sins sacrifice

On Very God we call!

.

.

(*) Ephesians 2:8-9
