Jesus carrying his cross.
Falling, bleeding, dying slowly.
Golgotha, the place of the skull.

Wooden cross, iron nails
Blood spurts, the crowd gasps, some cheer
“Mother, behold your son …”
“Son, behold your mother …”
“Father, forgive them, they don’t know what they do”
“My God, my God why have you forsaken me?”
Weeping, tears, death hangs in the air. But not yet…
A loud cry of triumph, “It … Is … Finished!”
Darkness falls, the earth quakes, the devil rejoices
God’s love is shown for all the world to see.
A borrowed tomb, but not for long
The stone rolls, soldiers faint and Jesus rises!
Our sins forgiven. Jesus lives!
Blessings to you … Jerry.
