This is my version in poetic form of Good Friday - The greatest Friday in all History .

He wept - They Slept



They followed Him - from the table to Gethsemane-
Where He prayed - and they slept -
They slept - He wept -
He wept - great drops of bloodied sweat -
He sweat - and conquered - Death -
While they slept .

He Was Kissed - That Dreadful Kiss.



He was kissed - that dreadful kiss -
The kiss of a friend - selling Him to His enemies -
He was arrested - from that kiss -
He was abandoned by His friends - after that kiss-
They fled - in panic - from that kiss -
While He was led away.

He Stood - In Silence .



He stood before His enemies - Silent -
They accused and threatened - He was silent -
He was silent as they mocked -
He said nothing - no defense - no pleas -
Silent - His response to them -
Was - Silence .

The Cock Crowed



His friends had run away - among the crowd
Peter stood - afraid - by the fire ashamed he stood -
' You were with Him ' someone said -
' I never knew the man ' Never ! Never !
Then - the cock crowed - thrice -
It broke his heart -
He wept.

I Wash My Hands Of Him



I wash my hands of this your King - the Ruler said -
The crowd grew angry at those words -
Caesar is our Ruler - We have no king -
They cried as one - This man must die -
Crucify ! - they cried - Crucify ! - Crucify !
Then - they led Him out to die .

He Stumbled On Towards The Gift



Scourged - broken - bloodied - bruised - and battered -
Barely recognizable as a man - but He embraced the cross -
As a gift - a gift to be embraced - not shunned -
He stumbled with this gift -
Stumbled and fell - but He went on towards the bitter end -
He stumbled on -Towards the gift.
For us .

That Was The Price He Paid



That was the price He paid - a costly price -
No man could pay - but only God -
While some mocked - some gambled - some joked - some scoffed -
But His mother watched - and waited -
Waited and watched - until the sword
Plunged in her heart -
He died.

This Is Not The end




This is not the end - this is the beginning -
Of hope for all men -
Hope for a new start -
Hope for a door to open - Hope for the healing of broken hearts -
Hope for our souls -
He said ' If I be lifted up - I will draw all men unto Me '
He was lifted up

The Door was opened

The Gift received

New life begins

HE IS ALIVE !
