Mariah of Magdala

Continuation of 

Today Mariah of Magdala,
It is written not only of you but of your enemies
Do you discover Mariah of Magdala
We are all alike
In pitch dark we hide our deeds
Our hearts judges knows each of our secret doing
Yet we claim to be purer
Easier it has been to curst out another

Mariah of Magdala!
Not a stone was crushed on you
Did the earth swallow your accusers?
Where did your accusers turn to? 
Were you your own fear?
Did you witness of their impurity?
Did the heavy hands found emerging engagement?
Oh, was there a hasty chase call?
For they all left without conviction

The pain of your suffering Mariah of Magdala
Was well understood by love
The pain of your deprival Mariah of Magdala
Was well perceived by love
The weight of your burden Mariah of Magdala
Was lifted by love

Oh Mariah of Magdala!
How did it feel at His feet?
At that stint of most horrific verve
Your world stood still 
But full of empty space 
Being filled with divine love
Pain translated to eternal joy
Confusion met with deeper understanding
Suffering filled out with bliss
Sorrow being afflicted to joyfulness
Animosity met with peace
Lethargy killed with patience
Kindness kissed away hostility
Immorality bolted out with goodness
Your treachery hidden by faithfulness

Oh Mariah of Magdala!
The true assurance of divine forgiveness
Restoration for all portrayed through you
Sweetness of meeting with Grace
That manifests its purity to transgressors
Secretly showing with love our errors 
Lifting up burdens of darkness
Showing best how to grace the renounced
Giving epitome price of forgiveness
