Gray was the color,
On that first day,
As death and sin shouted abuse,
Our Lord … in silence, prepared to pay.
He died for me, I died with him,
Words bled out of stories told,
Each more painful … than the last,
Deep cuts of love … unfold.
Darkness and sin expunged,
Bright light threw open an earthly tomb,
Jesus triumphant, emerges King,
Returned to earth, a new world’s groom.
It’s a new day now,
My life lit up,
Death you are no more,
My time has come to take this Cup.
….. I am ready for sure.
