Good Friday Again

The Son of God, a man, Jesus is dead!
Until the last, he was misunderstood;
Despite his sufferings, he kept his head;
His lifeless body hangs on cross’ wood!

He came to earth as per His Father’s bid;
A holy life, well-Scriptured, he had lived;
On earth, so many miracles, he did;
He forgave sinners and devils, he rid!

He showed mankind the greatness of God’s love;
He spent a sinless life white as a dove;
He spoke to His Father in heaven above;
The temple has been destroyed by men now!

He stood steadfast despite his many odds;
Apart from him, there were no other gods;
The world reproached him and he shunned awards;
To pure of heart, he waits to give rewards!

He braved the hilly way to Calvary bare-feet;
He bore the cross of mankind’s sinful heat;
He suffered ignominy, none dare meet;
He’ll come again to sieve the chaff from wheat!

His Father’s will, he obeyed till the last;
His name and glory are not things of past;
Of ship of Christianity, he was mast;
His win o’er death made all devils aghast!

The sun turned dark and did not give out light;
The angry earth shook as if with all might;
The blood of Christ had soaked the earth on site;
The place of skull looked dim though day, like night!

His body in a tomb for three days lay;
He’ll come again alive upon third day;
His divinity then will have its say;
He is true man and God, truth, life and way!

Today, the hearts of Christians appear sad;
The modern world in heinous sin looks bad;
Devils are rampant, making men more mad;
Jesus will resurrect to make us glad!

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
