poetry about Jesus

Unglamorous: Act 2

Luke23aCause him to suffer – our words, the Father’s will
Righteousness personified… and rejected
Upon him? The punishment that brought us peace
Crushed not for what he did, but for our iniquities
Innocent blood for the guilty – hammers in our hands, souls spattered
Father, forgive them
Into your hands I commit my spirit
Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?
