"Passion", A Poem

In blood and prayer our LORD bent the knee
Before the High Priest He would not plea
So to Herod and Pilate He went
Unflinching because He, the Father had sent

Jews purged
Romans scourged
Men drove the nails
God's love never fails

"Why have you forsaken" and "it is finished" He cried
How can it be that God by men has died?
The cross could not capture His hands and feet
By His passion for sinners our need did He meet
