Easter: The King on a Cross

They bound Him
They led Him away
His cup was bitter
That fateful day

"Are you King of the Jews?"
"Yes," He replied.
Crucify
Is what they cried


They struck his head
On bended knee
They mocked and spat
His throne, a tree

Save yourself
And we'll believe
For us You cry
For us You grieve?

The hammer fell
His flesh they tore
His royal blood
Spilt evermore

When Jesus died
Darkness rose
Earth shook
The dead exposed

At dawn upon that awestruck day
He rose from death, your debt to pay
When Mary came, the angel cried
Go tell the world, for them He died.

Hello,
I started a Christian blog about a month ago and was wondering if you would be willing to take a look at it and let me know what you think. Blessings,

Beutiful poem Debby!
"The LORD hath appeared of old unto me,
saying,
Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love:
therefore with loving-kindness
have I drawn thee."
Jeremiah 31:3

Unspeakable Love!

"I have loved thee with an everlasting love"
means that God loved us and planned
our salvation even before the world was created,
when we were but thoughts in the
creative mind of God.
Amazing condescension!
Unspeakable Love!

"With loving-kindness have I drawn thee"
tells us that His love was first
expressed in the kindness of our creation
and continued care.
But it is most beautifully expressed
in the kindness of our salvation.

What loving-kindness this is:
"God so loved the world that He gave
His one and only Son,
that whosoever believe in Him shall not perish
but have everlasting life."

Wonderful love, indeed!

Oh , my God i love the Easter is the season when i pray , i cry and after i smile of happyness becouse He will be with us ,soon!

Love you ,Debby !
