A Good Friday Meditation


bow

As some mocked in shame

Others cursed His name

Priests satisfied

Were glad He died

The Son of Man was Crucified

 

As the sun withdrew

And the shadows grew

Disciples fled

In fear and dread

The Son of Man was Crucified

 

As the Priests went home

Hardly sun still shone

The clouded sky

Dimmed every eye

The Son of Man was Crucified

 

As the Marys wept

And the demons crept

The darkest night

Can’t blot the sight

The Son of Man was Crucified

 

 

Judas hurls his hire

Silver burns like fire

Priests bat no eye

He had to die

The Son of Man was Crucified

 

Hid and locked away

Elev’n hearts give way

All hope is lost

Souls, rent and tossed

The Son of Man was Crucified

 

As the Sabbath dawned

No new joy it spawned

He’s in the grave

There’s none to save

The Son of Man was Crucified

 

How the day dragged sore

Was there nothing more?

Was nothing gained

From all the pain?

The Son of Man was Crucified

 

 

Then another night

No relief in sight

Soul-sick, thoughts churn

Griefs stab and burn

The Son of Man was Crucified

 

Then the new week breaks

And the cold earth quakes

The Marys come

The grave’s undone!

Where is the One they Crucified?

 

Mary tells the few

John and Peter too

The stone’s away

There’s where He lay

Where is the One they Crucified?

 

Mary sobbed her tears

Wracked by doubts and fears

The angels say

He’s gone away

The Son of Man they Crucified

 

 

Jesus stands behind

Tears have made her blind

He speaks her name

Is He the same?

The Son of Man they Crucified?

 

Clinging to His feet

She can only weep

Go tell. Don’t stay!

I live! Today!

The Son of Man they Crucified.

 

Demons scream in Hell

Broken – Satan’s spell

Death just died. Done!

Christ lives! He’s won!

He reigns, the Risen Crucified!

 

Sin’s debt, satisfied

For my sin, He died

Alive in Him

Cleansed every sin

The Son of Man they Crucified

 

 

Oh sing, Beloved, sing!

Of this your Christ and King

Who reigns on high

Whose Day draws nigh –

The Son of Man they Crucified
