Once Before

Once before
Another place
Kneeling I
Beheld Your face

Once before
Another crowd
Cried, “Crucify!”
Defiant, loud

Once before
Another crown
Twisted thorns
Pressing down

Once before
Another King
Purple robe
Homage bring

Mocking laughter
Sneering scorn
Wielding whips
Flesh was torn

I never knew
Kneeling then
That we would ever
Meet again

Kneeling now
Beholding You
Regretting all
I put You through

Radiant crown
Upon your head
Glorious robes
Before me spread

Deserving not
The loving Face
I receive
Amazing grace


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Love this one. Economic use of words to depict the Easter story and on into glory- see I rhymed too! Seriously, I thought of the Roman Centurion and how he might feel in Heaven. May have been inspired to write my own version; hold that thought. Regards Anne
