Worn and splintered.
Old and ragged, shoddy, battered,
Weather-beaten, sagging, tattered.
Packed with fodder, dust and hay,
No place for a new King to lay
His head, and yet,
With one small Child
Worn and splintered
Fierce and hostile.
Tall and rough-hewn, goading, taunting,
Ominous, forbidding, haunting.
Golgotha’s own hateful display,
No place for a brave King to lay
Himself, and yet,
With one pure Man
Fierce and hostile
Dark and bitter.
Dank and dingy, cold, unfeeling,
Shadowy, perturbed, concealing.
Constructed to hide death away,
No place for a dead King to lay
His body, yet
With one risen Lord
Dark and bitter
Lost and lonely.
Scared and helpless, trying, failing,
Miserable, unaided, wailing.
A heart of yet unmolded clay,
No place for a pure King to lay
His love, and yet,
With one Savior
Lost and lonely
Old and unyielding.
True and timeless, perfect, living,
Unpolluted, ageless, giving.
Prophesied from times of old,
Where past and future meet and hold
With one Great God
Old and unyielding
