My hands splinter as they grip the cross
The wood digs into flesh
And you can feel the warm
Droplets of blood drip upon your forehead.
O Child hear His cry
As He cries for You!
Bow low and prostrate yourselves!
For you cannot reach God
Until Jesus holds your hand and brings you to Him!
The Lord’s face is turned away from your pleas
And your cries
Until that one night
When you call upon the name of His Son
Your stone heart turns to flesh and the dark void that was empty is filled with light.
For my Savior
Has entered my room
My Savior whose
Who laid down his life for his People. For God’s people.
Rejoice dear heart for you are made anew!
Rejoice and cry your tears of joy for you who was lost is now found!
Jesus is forgiving and he forgives unconditionally. A love so strong and unblemished. For when he holds your head close to his heart you know your pain, your guilt, your shame and all the trickeries of the evil one vanishes in smoke.
Then Jesus kneels with you and prays with you.
And Behold again O Child! Behold again as the light fills the room and the Lord turns His face to you once more!
Know that even in your strength and will there are some things you cannot do alone. If anything at all! May Jesus be your strength forever.
