This work has reached the exceptional level
Jesus weeps for reprieve.


by Aussie

Gethsemane where he prayed
Disciples slept unafraid
He asked them to pray
They slept the night away.

Tears of fear He did weep
Asking Father for eternal sleep
His life on earth - gave a sigh
Father told him - you must die.

Die to be born again, Son of Man
He gave himself to Father's plan
Cruel death He endured for us
Jesus cried - "Abba, if I must."

Now we see the risen Lord above
Easter brings His wonderful love
When you know His sacrifice
Thank Him not once but thrice.

Easter brings us to His table
Gifts He gives, life now stable
Think of His life sacrificed
He paid ultimate price.

Poem of the Month contest entry


The real meaning of Easter has been forgotten by many - just a holiday and food a 'plenty. He died that we may live, not once but twice, once on earth and secondly, in heaven with Him. Happy Easter friends.
