The Christ

Red hue adorns the western sky As the blazing sun descends Tears fall freely from my eyes Prayers stifled, as daylight ends Frightened and alone, in this cell Sleep would bring welcome relief From the fear, beginning to swell Testing my will, testing my belief Judas Iscariot, was my betrayer Jealousy and greed, sinful traits A single kiss delivered his savior Choosing death, sealing his fate The jailers adorn me with a crown My body is beaten and bruised In their sins they have drowned Proclaiming me, King of the Jews A faithful son, obeying his father Accepting, my preordained ending From his will I would never falter My love for humankind is unending Hands opened, exposing the palms Screaming, as metal pierces the skin Tearfully reciting my favorite psalm Sacrificial lamb, for imagined sin My father watching from above As out of control my life careens Ignoring the prayers from the dove Turning away, refusing to intervene I was preordained for crucifixion For the Gentiles and Jews alike Freely offering eternity in heaven Ask forgiveness, receive salvation
