My 2AM Good Friday Poem...


Oh, that blessed day that took my faults and darkness away
The death of my Lord and God on that dark and silent day

You knew exactly what it would cost
But you never hesitated to save the lost

For the love of all men runs through your blood
Sinners are your friends as I am one you love

But sometimes I wonder what you see worth saving in me
Because I am so human and I desperately struggle to be free

"My Lord and My God" is what I would say if I was standing at the foot of your cross

I would never again doubt that apart from you the whole world is nothing but loss

Everything I kill myself to work so hard for every day
Is only but a fragile flower that one day will wilt away

My hope just cannot lie in the things that surround me here
But in all the things everlasting and eternal which I hold so dear

You gave up your own life so that we could all live
Your power is beyond me and the love that you give

All the ones I love are not lost to me at all
They still see the tears I cry and every time I fall

That is where my hope lies and nothing can take it away
That is why I choose to honor you on this Good Friday
