Darkness…

Easter8

Did Darkness

Take Jesus

From Garden to Prison

Betray Him and

Beat Him and

Hold Him restrained?

Easter8

Was it Darkness

That crowned Him

With thorns

Deeply piercing and

Drove mighty nails

Through His hands and His feet

Easter8

Was it Darkness

That held Him there

High on that wooden cross

Tortured for breath

Till He strangled

And died?

Easter8

Was it Darkness

That spat upon

Tortured

Tormented

Ridiculed

Punished

That closed His Life down?

Easter8

Twas darkness that followed

The close of His Life

Like the switch that dims lights

Or the breathe that snuffs flame

Twas Darkness that hid the land

Trembling and twisted

When dead rose from graves

The veil tore apart

Easter8

But Darkness

Does Nothing

Is nothing

but

Lightless

Darkness

Hides not

Deeds of Woman

Nor Man

Our shame and

Our sorrows

Clearly

Displayed

Choices

Made

In Heaven’s full light

For Darkness hides nothing

Easter5

No!

Twas not Darkness

Love then

Birth Pain

God chose

To endure

To bring back

His loved ones

To Life

He Holds it

Secure

For you

Out of a

Passion

He’s held for you

Always

Dearly

Costing

His All

  1. Beautiful, Denise, our hearts response is joy, the joy of knowing the Father’s love.
    Thank you.

  2. It was Christ’s light that overcame our darkness, through the blood shed on the cross. There is life in blood.
