GOOD FRIDAY ODE

GOOD FRIDAY ODE

Harrowing agony our Lord Jesus had to endure
Despite living a life so selflessly chaste & pure
While the lashes landed, His resolve stood sure
Nothing was capable of denting His pious core

Our sins He bore even after a guiltless screen
It was a degree of affection never before seen
Nothing they did could blur His spiritual sheen
Some do still doubt how that could have been

Spured by His ever compassionate conscience
On a mission to achieve a feat beyond science
With all His capabilities Jesus chose obedience
Knowing it will only be a temporary quiescence
I can imagine how Jesus gnashed and groaned
Under the weight of the cross He had moaned
In His bloody sweat He got drenched & drowned
His passion only waxed even as His skin fawned

For myself and yourself Christ bore this shame
This was a righteous man with no hue of blame
For us a sacrificial lamb our Lord Jesus became
Faithfuls must resolve not to despise that name

A factual history it is with an ever evolving story
It is by this believers are freed from eternal gory
Die hard sceptics now know it is beyond illusory
In everything to God almighty we funnel all glory

Good Friday is church’s most notable oxymoron
Nonetheless it is the kernel of faithfuls’ sermon
Saved is now a believer from the devil’s weapon
Never’ll the church be subject to the willy Dragon

BEST OF GOOD FRIDAY TO ALL
