When I Do Comprehend (Sonnet) - Poem by Gert Strydom

When I do comprehend
the painful and humiliating cross
that brings to sin and suffering an end
then any other great thing is at a loss

and when a love so deep and divine
does become my very own
and Your selfless life becomes mine
then there is more grace than that which I have known

and then I do understand that although You did say:
“Father forgive them for they know not what they do, ”
You did also forgive the ones that knew on that day
and your mercy and love goes through

any barrier that life and destiny can bring
and that knowing You is amazing.
