"The Heart-Wrenching Cry"

 A-Poem-a-Day Until Resurrection Day

Image credit: youtube.com



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

Atonement’s Hallelujah!


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!


the nod

of Jesus’ thorn-crowned head


and His Father’s most solemn




in Glory
