He is poured out like water
the gathered waters he called “seas”.
And like the seas,
he washes his people until they are free of all disease.
“If you are willing, make me clean”
the man came begging on his knees
“I am willing”, He said “be clean”
to this man he gave the keys
to the kingdom, the man went driving
told the world of all he’d seen
that they could be a son or daughter
of the Father who is unseen
Love at the price of slaughter
with this blood we’ve been redeemed
the God who brings us to the water
like his sheep in fields of green
This is what I mean:
He anointed the holy temple of his people
then those he appointed took a few too many sleep pills
In Gethsemene we see the sequel
of disciples who were Adam’s narcoleptic equal
veil torn; battle born with the destruction of the steeple
In 3 days he would rebuild
with a cross upon a steep hill
the promise of the gospel that humanity could be refill-ed
with the power of His glory, HOLY SPIRIT instilled
in the hearts of those who chose to love, who chose to do His will.
“Crucify Him” they yelled
Crucify the God of Is-ra-el!
Humbled to the point of death
you chose to give us your last breath
SO now we stand in awe
of the one who gave it all
the promises that the old testament addressed
were no longer exclusive to the way priests dressed
A final sacrif-ICE to atone for rights
would suff-ICE as an offering
to spark the light
within us the fire would ignite
a movement of love, of a willingness to fight
for peace; its the reason our Christ died
to come beside the helpless that’s why they crucified
him; even Peter 3x denied him; the blameless son of God they despised
him and nailed him to the cross thinking they could hide
sins. But there the sins stayed plastered
on the cross of innocence they festered
feeding on the flesh of love himself
the sins consumed the dove itself
While bibles stay up on our shelf
we crucify his flesh ourselves.
Not seeing that complacence keeps our light diminished
and stagnance keeps our might extinguished.
Jesus declared “it is finished”
his perfect love remains unblemished
and still we leave his work unfinished
by timing love and giving limits
by not stopping for just 2 minutes
His love is made complete
when we show them our receipt
“Paid in full” for all who’re incomplete
rather than walking in our vain conceit.
On the cross you prayed in anguish
crying out in another language
and there you hung upon a tree.
“Oh Messiah, hear my plea. ”
Father, Father can’t you see
the guilty one is me.
