Have you envisioned
our Lord upon The Cross?
Have you seen
those considered lost?

Did you notice
the absence of Grace?
Did you observe
tears staining His face?

Can you imagine
the agony of His pain?
Have you accepted the Gift
of the Lamb that was slain?

On that day of crucifixion
Love was brokenhearted
and divine reconciliation
was quietly started.

Christ mourned the souls
who chose the path of rejection
and was sadden by their ignorance
of His personally offered Salvation.

Days before Resurrection Sunday
the silent tears of Christ fell,
having glimpsed the future in which…
numerous souls were separated by hell.
