A Sad Friday - Poem by Clarence Prince

‘Twas on a hill far away
Like on this special day

The day we call Good Friday
In a very humiliating way

Despised by the crowd
All were shouting a loud

His hands and feet were bound
Crucify Him they said, crucify Him

None on record had said lose Him
Like a Lamb He wore His Crown

Though it was not a worthy Crown

Whose life was to restore and save
Every human that could've been lost

To sin and to all its disadvantages
Christ died for the saving of every one

But, what a price, at such a cost
Upon a Cross that made from tree

He was nailed while setting us free
Christ suffered and died

Redeeming you and me
On a hill far away

On a day like today
We call it Good Friday

But truly it was not
For it was a sad day

    Whenever we think of our Lord's crucifixion, we are made to contemplate that it was our sins that made him take up such severe suffering and humiliation and it makes us feel sad! A timely write on Good Friday which makes us go to the Mount of Calvary and ponder over his sufferings! Well done, Clarence! I invite you to read my poem on the same theme The 'Yaga on the Mount'!

    Very nicely and aptly presented your poem for Good Friday naming Sad Friday about Jesus Christ. There is certain reason for Good Friday though its events are full of sadness. Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply
