Poetry Sunday ~ I was weeping...

John 19:25-26 Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son!

I was weeping…

There were some who placed Him on the cross;
while others pulled His linen to toss.
Some were poking spears in his side
while women below were weeping and cried.

I was weeping.

Men were standing there mocking Him
some laughed and scoffed as His eyes grew dim.
Wails could be heard all across the way
as God put an end to the longest day.

I was wailing.

Some contend He was a guilty man
but only God knew his master plan.
Carried off to a cold empty tomb,
women followed; their faces bore gloom.

I was full of gloom.

In three days she came looking for
a Man that laid in the tomb no more.
Run and tell men to praise and sing
The Lord has risen, our Savior and King!

I was singing!

While many stood in disbelief
there were some who felt great relief.
Not all men nailed Him to that cross
Some people wept and felt the loss.

I was weeping.

Matt. 28:5-9 And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you. And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word. And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him.

This is beautiful! There's that quality of response going on, one that also has 'chorus' written all over it. Moving, lyrical, musical,Joni.

A blessing of a poem! :D <3

Thanks Ben,
I wish I could take credit for it but I pray for what to say and He fills in the blanks.
I'm just an instrument. :)

This poem did get a better reception than I ever would have thought.

I thought it might offend some whatwith all this God talk.

But again, I can never apologize for my faith. :)
