From a distance seeing these things,
the shepherd of souls;
disciples through generations
standing in fear
beholding the cross.
A sick woman touchs the robe of her healer
stand at a distance, seeing these things
touch the robe of those
who have gone before
touching yet others—
gazing at this awful event
to stop the cross
we could not.
Standing at a distance, beholding these things
I join the shepherds
touch a robe
am healed and give thanks
for an empty tomb
and deserted grave clothes.
Together—at a distance—hand to brow
join the throng—yet to behold this thing
the glory of the one true king.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
