Lord Jesus Christ, Thanks For Your Sacrifice - Poem by Okuola Paul Abiola

Ruthlessly the judgement was pronounced
A shameful death sentence
To be carried out at the place of a skull
For all to see and mock him

Despite his innocence, clearly proved beyond all doubt
Despite his goodness to all and sundry
Despite his love to everyone
This judgement was upheld by all

But with joy in his heart he embraced his death
So that the will of he, who sent him, may be fulfilled
So that all, including his execusioners, will be reconcilled to the creator
So that no soul will be lost

This is a sacrifice that is beyond all sacrifice
A sacrifice of life which was exceptional

Lord Jesus Christ, Thanks For Your Sacrifice

    Lovely piece of poetry depicting the essence of Christ crucifixion, well articulated and nicely penned with spiritual insight. Beautiful poem bristling with knowledge. Thanks for sharing Okuola. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply
