His Death - My Peace
Illegal trial; though silent He remained.
And in that silence brave they were
and spat, and called Him names.
A blindfold placed upon Him –
they struck Him with their hands,
“If you’re the Christ, who strikes you –
Can’t you tell?”
and through the street, they led Him,
and mocked Him when He fell.
The place of death they came at last
the air was filled with sickening thuds
as nails ripped into flesh
and crucified they Him that day,
The Prince of Peace – a lamb in death.
The skies grew dark; the earth did quake,
and curtain rend from top to base,
with shoulders, hearts and spirits bowed,
they lay Him in a guarded tomb and left
to hide away and grieve.
forget did they the promise given
that three days hence would bring
Messiah, Jesus, Saviour the resurrected King.
Before the light; before the dawn
with heart and soul near death
did Mary come to weep,
and what she saw – the empty tomb
brought pain afresh and fear
till voice so sweet and tender –
the One she knew full well
said but one word; her name He spoke
to cause her heart to swell in rapture sweet
with love and joy o’ flowed ran she to tell
the others the glorious gladsome news
Rejoice! Rejoice! Oh, hearts take flight
let glad Hosannas ring,
the Lord is living – risen
No more can death defeat us,
No more can sin hold sway
Oh, sing my soul, rejoice and shout
For now, He’s unbound Heaven’s gates
the way to God made free,
to live and love and walk with Him
for now, my Saviour, Lord and King,
is mine, for all eternity.
