Take the Cup

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.
