Jesus' Crucifixion

Crucified upon the cross
The betrayer at his loss
Left him for dead
Why had he such dread?

For money was his only reason
He had committed treason
He had betrayed God
Such a fraud

During the last supper
He had spoken of this traitor
But had not revealed him
As he knew that God had planned this in

He had told his disciple, Peter
He would deny him three times later
Peter promised to avoid his denial
But what Jesus says will always be real

Upon his back
The whip had slashed
Sending blood oozing
From his flesh

On his head
Set a crown of thorns
Pain like piercing lead
Making him mourn

Suffered he had
Made him beyond sad
Still he carried upon his bare shoulder
The cross was set on his raw collar

A stranger helped carry the cross
Up the hill to a place of future chaos
The cross was planted
Where Jesus was later tormented

A nail through each palm
He still remained calm
As he knew this was his destiny
For men to be saved shortly

Companions on the cross
One’s faith touched Him
He promised him no loss
He would go to heaven with Him

That night storms swept the land
God’s anger
Taking a stand
Making the night so much darker

Jesus’ body set in a tomb
A particularly dark room
Covered in linen
He was raised to God’s haven

Three days later
Linen left behind
Jesus resurrected from the grave
In mankind this story engraved

Proof of his real identity
In his hands were holes
From those nails so nasty

Amazement flooded the earth
Unknown to them
That night had been mankind’s rebirth...
