Poems of Passion Week – Day 6 – The Reason

 

JESUS IN GARDEN - NEGATIVE  -KAREN'S WHIMSY

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

O, Lamb of God
So pure, so holy, undefiled,
You came so meekly,
Vulnerable, a tiny child.


You took our sin
And took all of its consequence.
You chose the cross,
And on it your lifeblood was spent.


But for what cause,
When tempted in the garden that night,
Did you still choose
To let yourself be crucified?


You told us, Lord;
If we’d just listen, we would know.
You said, “Because
I love the Father, I will go.”


Lord, work in us
That holy and obedient love,
That we, when tried,
Will speak and act only for God.
