The Last Words - Poem by Reginald Walker
Jesus lifts his head to breathe.
The crowd gathers for the show.
He was their teacher and friend.
He used to be someone to know.
They beat upon him until he bruised.
For our sins, this was the cost.
The soldiers choose the words to use.
The King of the Jews is nailed the cross.
Jesus slowly moves his head.
He sees a criminal on each side.
My Savior, on a cross, left for dead.
Hear his last words before he died.
It is hard to hear the last words he said.
As his breathing slowly diminished,
He gradually drops his bleeding head.
Listen. the words are ‘It is finished.’
