Weekend Inspiration

endorsement

This week “Weekend Inspiration comes from our dear friend of the ministry Lorraine again. So be inspired by Lorraine’s poem, ‘From The Cross’.

FROM THE CROSS

CRUEL TAUNTS BELOW THE CROSS ADDED TO HIS PAIN,

WHIPPED AND SHEDDING OF HIS BLOOD WITH DUST WHERE HE HAD LAIN.

FADING WHISPERS LEFT HIS LIPS FOR HIS FATHER TO HEAR,

‘THEY KNOW NOT OF WHAT I AM TO ENDURE AND BEAR.’

 

‘TIS FOR THEM MY CRIES CALL AND ECHO OUT

BUT MY WORDS ARE NOT HEARD AS I CANNOT SHOUT.

MY LIFE I GIVE IN LOVE FREELY LIKE A BIRD IN FLIGHT.’

FATHER, MY GOD, MY BODY LEAKS, NO MORE IS THERE LIGHT.

 

EACH DROP THAT FALLS IS TO SAVE EACH ONE OF YOU

WHO HUDDLE AT MY FEET TO SCORN ME, TO SEE MY LIFE SO END.

SO MANY IN THE CROWD PUSH AND SHOVE TO VIEW

MY DEMISE AS FORETOLD BY GOD, OF HIS SON HE MUST SEND.

 

MY EYES GROW DIM; MY DEATH IS FOR ALL SIN.

FORGIVE THOSE WHO BETRAYED AND PLACED ME HERE.

I AM THE COST FOR ALL OF EARTH WHOM I MUST WIN.

AS BREATH LEAVES ME, GOD, LIFT ME, IF YOU ARE THERE.

WITH THIS SACRIFICE, I  ENDURE, IN FAITH,  ALMOST FILLED

TO GAIN THE LIVES OF THOSE WHO SHARE

AND TRUST IN ME BUT TODAY THE HEARTS ARE STILL,

 

THE SKY GROWS DARK, I WILL NOW LEAVE,

ASTHE EARTH IS RENT WITH STRANGE SIGNS.

THE SILENCE OVERCOMES. THE CROWD WILL BEREAVE,

AS THEY SHUFFLE AWAY IN SHAMED LINES.

 

FORGIVE, FORGIVE, THEY KNOW NOT WHO THEY DID DOUSE

I CRY AS I DIE.

IN A CLOTH OF LINEN MY BODY IN A TOMB WILL LIE.

YET AGAIN HIS LIGHT AND LOVE WILL AROUSE,

FOREVER TO BE OUR ETERNAL, HOLY SPIRIT HOPE, NIGH.
