Until Resurrection Day
THE HEART-WRENCHING CRY
Oh, I am sure God heard it
as He sat with His head in His hands
on the edge of His great golden throne
moments away from Victory
This wasn’t the cry of physical pain
from crucifixion nails
pressing against Jesus’ pierced flesh
No, this was different—
This was the cry of…Abba, where are You?
the utterance that shot from Earth to Heaven
from the One He was One with
from all eternity—
Why hast Thou forsaken Me?
This was the wuthering wail
from despair’s deepest depth
as sin of all the world fell upon
the One who had never sinned
This echoed Satan’s final snarl before
and the Blood-washed expiation
of my sin and yours
of all sin past and present
sin of those yet unborn
those not yet conceived
sin of those who would not be born
for centuries and millenniums
This was the heart-wrenching cry before
It is finished!
of Jesus’ thorn-crowned head
and His Father’s most solemn
