The death of Jesus

Gepubliceerd op 31 maart 2024 om 18:00

On a hopeless day,
fulfilled with sins,
they were watching Jesus
hanging high. 


And like a great army
of violins,
the death of Jesus
dimmed the sky.


For months, for weeks, 
they had all claimed
that Jesus only 
did pretend.


Now they found out
-slightly ashamed-,
He really meant to
be their Friend. 


Since He had died,
it seemed too late
to name Him as
the Son of God. 


But then they saw 
Him conquer hate;
After three days
He rose from death.


On this hopeful day, fulfilled with sins,
His love is staring in our eyes.
He is the truth, the life, our way,
His holds His arms all open wide. 


For us He crossed
all bounderies,
and now it's our turn
to believe. 


I waited long,
but now I see: 
His victory
has set us free.

'From noon until three in the afternoon darkness came over all the land. About three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” (which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”). When some of those standing there heard this, they said, “He’s calling Elijah.” Immediately one of them ran and got a sponge. He filled it with wine vinegar, put it on a staff, and offered it to Jesus to drink. The rest said, “Now leave him alone. Let’s see if Elijah comes to save him.” And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit.'


- Matthew 27:45-50
