What did the local people see?
They saw a man from Galilee,
Who walked on water, calmed the sea,
He healed the sick, set captives free,
Spoke God’s Word with authority.

What did His own disciples see?
His everyday humanity,
The stamp of His divinity,
His holiness, humility;
His words and deeds done perfectly.

What did the traitor Judas see?
He was His friend, supposedly!
He must have known ‘twas really He,
The promised One of prophecy?
He saw an opportunity.

What did Caiaphas, high priest see?
He saw a man of blasphemy,
A threat to his authority—
That One should die was his decree—
He thus fulfilled the prophecy.

What did Pontius Pilate see?
Towards Him he felt no enmity;
He wished to let their King go free;
He bowed to their insistency,
Absolved himself conveniently!

What did demonic forces see?
They saw Him dead upon the tree;
How short their time of fiendish glee—
Death swallowed up in victory
And captive led captivity.

What does worldly wisdom see?
It speculates religiously,
It bows down hypocritically,
Sees not its own iniquity,
Treats God and devil equally.

What you and I and others see
In Him Who died upon that tree
Decides our fate eternally;
God’s everlasting sure decree:
The debt was paid on Calvary.

All those who come to Him will see
His life in them abundantly,
In heart and soul and mind set free,
Now watching, waiting joyfully—
Behold He comes! All eyes will see!

Wow - Excellent title for an excellent piece.. how did you manage to make the whole thing rhyme like that and keep the powerful message. Great job!
Anita van der Elst07/30/10
Very nice! Two questions: First, who knew so many words rhymed with see? Second question is the same as previous poster: how did you get it to rhyme so wonderfully and at the same time, communicate an awesome message?
