It was a death he freely accepted
T'was brutal, humiliating, and unfair
Preceded by a trial that was unjust
He must have felt that the whole
world despised Him

It was a beating He freely accepted
T'was ghastly, excruciating, and unwarranted
Prompted by a traitor who was unfaithful
He must have cringed when even
His closest friends renounced Him

It was an agony He freely accepted
Alone in the garden with full foreknowledge
of the horrors He would shoulder
He must have felt that even His Father
had deserted Him

Twenty centuries later, we too have
trials that seem unfair....
friends who renounce us....
and agony when the world beats on us
like a drum

Fortunate are we that He's never deserted us
when life seems unjust
He waits patiently, lovingly
for us to accept misfortune freely....faithfully

To honor Him who rose triumphantly.....heroically
over the agony, the beating, and death
A death that He accepted freely....for us.

This poem is about the awesome and willing price our Lord paid for giving us eternal life.
