Our days on this shadowed orb
consume us with illusions of endless desperation.
Sin’s iron grasp on our souls
draws us ever closer to death’s gaping maw,
threatening to swallow us irrevocably into its infinite ALONE!
For such a time as THIS…
The eternal LORD who shaped our clay
defied the logic of His finite creatures,
by choosing our darkness of forsakenness.
He swallowed it whole in that instant of time,
“Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachtani!”
It was a moment as our world counts time,
yet its reach is eternal through His nail-pierced hands,
drawing us, NOW, into His loving embrace,
with the Father & Spirit, a forever ONE!
(See Mark 15:22–39)
