The Voice That Held My Hand

you look down
from your pulpit
lead me

 to The Cross    unveil Christ’s shattered body    reach for my hand
thrust it into His side
I am covered in blood and water   unlike the spectators   allowed
to leave at His final cry
His death   you wait while I weep   when I am ready
you begin to raise me from myself

you teach
The Cross is
not hate fear
but pureness
this blood
I wear
God’s love

Teacher
you show
true power
in humility
salvation
in death
in turmoil
you bring
peace unto me

if you
mere mortal
leave me not
without hope
this dark day
surely neither
would He
