Wood and Blood Commingled

lightening flashing, cracking through the sky

ominous clouds cloaked, preparing to gather

deception snaking—slowly it slinks, slithers

through insipid onslaughts of religious scorn

ominous clouds cloaked, preparing to gather

as hatred foams from mordant mouths of men

through insipid onslaughts of religious scorn

while water seeks to wash away defilement

as hatred foams from mordant mouths of men

now betraying innocence, exalting vile sin

while water seeks to wash away defilement

among proclamations shouting, “Crucify Him.”

now betraying innocence, exalting vile sin

stripping, tearing away any likeness of a man

among proclamations shouting, “Crucify Him.”

blood pours, shards of bone and metal dig deep

stripping, tearing away any likeness of a man

His heart beating life among thorns, yet silent

blood pours, shards of bone and metal dig deep

ripped tissue, provision made, for coming—Glory

His heart beating life among thorns, yet silent

wood—rough, splintered, sinks into marred flesh

ripped tissue, provision made, for coming—Glory

the snake slithers, proclaiming victory, hissing defeat

wood—rough, splintered, sinks into marred flesh

brutal weight falls, echoing redemption eternal

the snake slithers, proclaiming victory, hissing defeat

as nails pierce tender flesh of hands once healing

brutal weight falls, echoing redemption eternal

hammering a mockery, a sign—King of the Jews

as nails pierce tender flesh of hands once healing

blood cascades into rivers of the Father’s tears

hammering a mockery, a sign—King of the Jews

raised among thieves, a spotless sacrificial lamb

blood cascades into rivers of the Father’s tears

silence gives way to groans of forsaken longing

raised among thieves, a spotless sacrificial lamb

cries, “Father forgive them, they know not.”

silence gives way to groans of forsaken longing

it is finished, inhaling breath of this life—no more

cries, “Father forgive them, they know not.”

gathered clouds descend, darkness invades

it is finished, inhaling breath of this life—no more

the earth quakes, giving up those once dead

gathered clouds descend, darkness invades

veil between God and man is ripped asunder

the earth quakes, giving up those once dead

the snake hisses, retreating—Hell is plundered

veil between God and man is ripped asunder

He descends to depths among Sheol’s torment

the snake hisses, retreating—Hell is plundered

The Cross—saturated wood, demands surrender

He descends to depths among Sheol’s torment

the snake shrivels under—Glory—now evident

The Cross—saturated wood, demands surrender

defeating death, Hell and the grave, eternal

the snake shrivels under—Glory—now evident

permeated, destroyed, gates of Hell are shattered

defeating death, Hell and the grave, eternal

not one drop of His blood pouring—is wasted

permeated, destroyed, gates of Hell are shattered

a stone is rolled away—Glory—now resurrected

not one drop of His blood pouring—is wasted

head of the snake, crushed, subdued by—The Cross

a stone is rolled away—Glory—now resurrected

lightening flashes, severing death’s hold—forever

head of the snake, crushed, subdued by—The Cross

Christ blood, forever cascading, pouring eternal rivers

lightening flashes, severing death’s hold—forever

born of submission to humiliation upon saturated wood

Christ blood, forever cascading, pouring eternal rivers

of salvation—His Cross—wood and blood commingled
