What A Strange Beauty - Poem by Danny Speicher

What a strange beauty lies before my eyes now
A Savior, broken, bleeding, crying out
I stand watching, in awe, the crimson flow
As the soldiers and crowd yell, scream and shout

What a strange beauty lies before my eyes now
A mother, a disciple, remember
As the images rise and His words grow
His sacrifice now makes all Hell tremble

What a strange beauty lies before my eyes now
This God, this man, prayse for those who hate Him
This God, this man, even now He bestows
His blessings to a thief, full of his sin

What a strange beauty lies before my eyes now
What a perfect sacrifice for mankind
He stretches out HIs arms, to us to show
The weak His strength and His sight to the blind

What a strange beauty lies before my eyes now
