His death:

His death does seem both good and bad,
There's joy and sorrow to be had,
When worshiping in thankfulness,
Of Jesus' act of graciousness.

What he suffered, the thought is sad,
His death does seem both good and bad,
For it was painful, full of strife,
A sacrifice for my own life.

I know he does not want pity,
For what he did, he did for me.
His death does seem both good and bad,
It opened the way to my dad.

It conquered all my sin and shame,
Now I'm a victor in his name.
And though this makes my spirit glad,
His death does seem both good and bad.



'His Death' talks about the mixed emotions many people feel when they think about Jesus' death on the cross for their sins. God wants us to be happy even though it is His Sons death we are rejoicing over. For God gave Him as a gift unto us, a gift that we should greatly rejoice in, for He is our salvation. This is not saying that you should forget the pain and suffering Jesus went through for you, but you should not let that break the rhythm of your praise. God the Father delights in you his child and just as an earthly father wills his child to be happy, so God would have you be eternally joyful. No matter where you are in life or what your circumstances are, remember that you have a reason for joy, you have a reason to be thankful: Jesus died for you!

oooh, very creative the way you used that line, "His death does seem both good and bad." You managed to put it first in the first line, then the second/third and fourth, all in four verses and still have it fit together. Great job! I'm impressed.

Thanks Harrichan :)
Just so everyone realizes, the end bit was only added on because the poem in itself did not fulfill the required word count.

Jesus' death on the cross certainly hurts bad, yet brings forth good to all who believe. I like your poem very much because it speaks so deeply within and expresses what Christ's death means to us in our hearts.
