February 1989

 

my God!

the grief you felt

that awful day

your only

treasured Son

 

dead

 

my god!

could tears become your face

that laughed creation’s dawn

could your hands

that juggled stars

and moulded man

truly clench in pain

could your breath

that gave men life

stop

as we took His

 

my god!

I am sorry

for me you endured this pain

but for the man I am

it need never have come

I am sorry

 

my God!

how you must have smiled

a million suns obtaining life

by your joy

your laugh

it must have shamed the thunder

as He came dancing back

leaping planets in His joy

 

“My Father!

My Father!

It is FINISHED!”

 

your Son

the mighty King

returning to your side

surely the universe ceased its pause

dancing quick from mourning

echoing to this day

the joy of love fulfilled

 

my God!

I thank you

for being saved by what I caused

I too can come to you

singing and dancing in joy

and bow before you

in adoration
