Into the heart of the abyss I drown my thoughts.
Into the fog and cold they wander aimlessly,
lurking into the vastness of unfathomable depths.
I see the intensity of your pain
wrought from the deeds of men like me
hounded by sin, covered in shame.
I see you suffer immensely
not by the lashings that rip off your flesh
But by my faults that pain you greatly.
I see you stumble bearing that wooden beam
the wrongs of men weigh heavily upon you
as you struggle up to fulfill the fate you’ve seen
Trudging slowly, painstaking step after step
driven by the heartbeat of men,
their chorus of lies, the troubles they beget
I see you shudder as jagged nails pierce your hands
the way we thrust a sword into another man’s heart
with rage and hate as they fall where they stand
Upon your cross you chose to forgive me
even in the face of death, you still cared
You truly love me, unconditionally.
My soul I lift unto the light of a dove
Into forgiveness and peace I am sheltered
Saved by the vast and unfathomable depths of your love.
