MY GOD, MY GOD, WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME?

ELOI, ELOI, LAMA SABACHTHANI


My God, My God, Why have you forsaken me?

Cried the all bearing savior

Stripped of his majesty and glory

Naked, he hangs, horrific and deathly

What did thou thinkest, Lord

To cry thus, unto your own regal Father

Battalions of angels can thou summon

To thy aid, you choose gory death, rather

Is it really you who once paraded?

On a donkey, thou gentlest prince of peace

Met with cheers and smiles, with Kingly ardour

Now so shamefully portrayed, with twisted knees

Was it really because you could not stand a moment more?

Of thy excruciating torture, disgrace or cruelty

Did you despair of the All-Mighty, who could

Mercilessly, the sight of that horror bore

When women, looked down on, stood up for you

And wept, ne’er deserting, so filled with sorrow

And all those closest to you, fled away, disloyal

Couldn’t you bear the agony, their minds, so narrow

How could you cry so? You capable of repining

At the last moment? My noblest, most graceful Lord

What made you soul prick so, thought, parched of lip

You cried so loud, ever faithful to thy forsaking God
