Someone Cared - Poem by Royston Allen

No one cared, they just walked on by
and left me all alone to die.
Then looking up I saw You there
Your arms outstretched in loving care.

No one cared, they just walked on by
and left You on that cross to die.
'Father forgive' You cried out loud
as there in death Your head was bowed.

I came and saw You hanging there.
My heart stirred and began to care.
I knew why You were crucified.
‘Twas for my sins You'd bled and died.

You cared and You saved me from death
settled my debts with Your last breath.
Poured out Yourself and paid the price.
Laid down Your life in sacrifice.

Written after reading Luke 10: 30-37

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Written after reading Luke 10: 30-37
30 In reply Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead.31 A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side.32 So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side.33 But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him.34 He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him.35 The next day he took out two denarii[a] and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him, ’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’

36 “Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers? ”

37 The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.”

Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.”
