Bleeding FOR Life

The ground was so soaked
Where His blood ran down the cross.
Dead but giving life!

The tree He was on,
God let grow for His Own Son
To die on, yet live!

The tomb on the hill
was just borrowed for week end.
Stone was rolled away.

On that third morning
A bright light glowed from within.
Jesus had risen.

Women came to see.
Death where is thy victory?
Grave where is thy sting?

Twenty-Third Psalm in Senryu Form

Lord is my shepherd
He’s with me.  I have no want
Always forever

I am in pastures
Verdant green with cool waters
Beside the stillness

God shall protect me
When I walk through death’s shadow
He shall be my guide

At this large table
He anoints my head with oil
My cup runs over

Goodness follows me
All of the days of my life
In my Good Lord’s house.

Are you ready

If tomorrow comes
The last of the end of days
Will you be ready?

Hope is to be found
In the one who gives us life
Jesus Christ, my Lord

Pray to him always
Abide in the truth he gives
Love and peace to you

Victory is won
Glory to God in all ways
Satan must pout now:)
