day of the cross

before earth's foundation
trinitarian bond undivided
chose one to die
bringing many sons to glory
in fullness of time

wounded innocent lily of the valley
mocked by blind hypocrites like
white-washed sepulchers
during heyday of the blood
poured out for all

guiltless despised king freely forgave
torturers who understood not the
meaning of his death
nor what he purchased
for human race

disfigured man of sorrow forsaken
slain amid angry mob
regained that lost in eden
crushed wormwood's head
underneath nail-pierced feet

scourged rose of sharon bore each sin
with humble obedience brought
fulfillment to God's
wrathful war on evil
finished in peace

sinless faithful friend of sinners
like a lamb led to slaughter
numbered with the fallen
gloriously resurrected
sacramental love unending

unashamed believers openly rejoice
blood's atoning stream
became costly sacrifice
cleansed white as snow
the day of the cross
