Hope hangs dying

Hope hangs dying

The crowd lying

Disciples denying

His mother crying

Love defying

Faith forgotten

God’s mercy mocked

Our way lost

Truth taunted

Sacred scorned

Redeemer Rejected

Bleeding

Broken

Dying

God!

Crucified?

What unleashes such hate?

Preaching

Feeding

Touching untouchables

Welcoming

Forgiving

Loving

Through parched lips

Praying

Proclaiming

“Father, forgive them”

Father, forgive them, they do not know”

Forgive these?

How can this be?

Lord please!

No, No, No, Heaven and Hell, No

They do know!

They never forgive

They forever stone

They always judge

They easily justify

They quickly vilify

They cleverly deny

They do know

Oh Sacred Head, now wounded, by love suspended, on our unholy tree

Turn your gaze away from me

“Seventy times seven”

“On earth, as in heaven”

“Be on your guard against all kinds of unholy leaven”

“Unless you forgive”

“take up your cross and live”

“Love your neighbor and your enemy”

Lord, Your words they pierce me!

For I deny

With judging lips, I lie

The other sinners, I vilify

Myself alone do I justify

In un-forgiveness, I abide

Oh, Lord it is I!

Even for me you died

does your love endure forever?

Perfect Love

Lavished on our perpetual hate

Arise

Forgive

Restore

Redeem

Renew

Recast

Recreate

Revive

Love Crucified

Live

Forgive

Be born again in me!

For only through Your Cross do we see
