Poem: And yet He did it

Source

In the Garden of Gethsemane

He was loath to take the cup

And yet His eyes saw through the years

To me, so He took it up


His heart was wrought with dread and fear

Like any man would be

And yet, He vowed to pay the price

It cost to rescue me


The soldiers came, the disciples slept,

A kiss betrayed the truth

And yet, despite the road ahead,

He chose to see it through


A whip they laid upon His back

A crown of thorns, His head

And yet, a word He uttered not

His silence kept instead


They chose a ruthless man to free

Barabbas was their choice

And yet, a sinless man was killed

His sacrifice His voice


The nails, they pierced His hands and feet

The blood so freely flowed

And yet, He paid the price for me

A price He never owed.


They thought they’d found a way to quell

The teachings that He gave

And yet, the tomb could not contain

He rose up from the grave.

...so sad and true!... in the end, it's a relief that with the power of God- everything were conquered.

petenali: Voted up, awesome and beautiful! A wonderful tribute to He who died so we could live! What Jesus went through, I never could go to that Mel Gibson movie, "The Passion." I think everyone saw it except me, I could not bear to see Christ suffer in that movie. I can't stand suffering of any kind. Yet He conquered. God bless you today, Easter Sunday, and always, and thank you for this sincere and genuine contribution to HubPages. Sparklea :)

So beautifully written. He placed Himself on the cross for the whole world. Ressurection, the foundation of our beliefs - He rose! In His Love, Faith Reaper
