THE SUFFERING OF JESUS

by mikeb

 

Born into a world of anger
The rich and greedy ran
You came to help the leper
The poorest kind of man
Brought light into the darkness
And lived a simple life
You suffered, oh so greatly
In Your walk of toil and strife.

Upset the laws of hypocrites
The pharisees and their kind
And taught about The Father
To people who were blind
You ridiculed the system
By changing all the rules
Angering the mighty
Demoting them to fools.

No wonder they got angry
And plotted out Your death
Searching for a loophole
So they could cut Your breath
Then they finally got You
Betrayed by Judas, friend
It brought about a promise
That You kept until the end.
The agonizing, pain filled walk
To where Your victory lay
Was made for us and everyone
Whose price You want to pay
Defeating death and satan
We need no longer fear
You are our intercessor
With the Father we hold dear.

So thank You, dear Lord Jesus
For all You’ve done for me
I’m with You for a lifetime
Past that, ETERNITY.
