The Face of Christ
double Heroic rispetto
Our Savior's face revealed the war inside,
rejection's pain, determination's goal.
He gave control to God, surrendered pride
to dreadful men, forgave their sinful souls.
On Sunday, He proclaimed the truth unfurled,
disclosing what He'd promised to the world.
Recalling why He came - to deal with sin,
Christ knew without a doubt, He'd rise again.
This did not serve the Jewish leadership.
The ones who'd watched His gory death were taught
to think that death would ne'er release its grip.
Traditions do not die; their sacred thought.
Their hope of a Messiah was a king
who’d roust the Romans, Jewish kingdom bring.
When three days later, Jesus did return,
their blinded minds could no new lesson learn.
