TWAS NOT OUT OF FEAR OF THE NAILS THAT HE WEPT,

ALONE IN THE GARDEN WHILE ALL HIS FRIENDS SLEPT.

TWAS NOT FOR THE THOUGHT OF THE SWORD IN HIS SIDE,NOR YET FOR REPRIEVE TO HIS FATHER HE CRIED.

HE ASKED NOT TO LESSEN THE PAIN HE WOULD BEAR,

WHEN SUFFERING IN ANGUISH HE BOWEDDOWN IN PRAYER.

TWAS NOTOUT OF FRIGHT THAT HE TREMBLED AND BLED,

DREADING THE THORNS THEY WOULD FORCE ON HIS HEAD.

HE PRAYED NOT IN PRIDE FOR ALL MEN TO SEE,

BUT HUMBLY AND LONELY IN GETHSEMANE.

HE BEGGED FOR HIS FRIEND WHO'D BETRAYED HIM THAT DAY,

ASKED PARDON FOR THOSE WHO WOULD LEAD HIM AWAY.

HE PRAYED FOR THE SOLDIERS WHO WOULD MOCK HIS DISGRACE.

MERCY,HE ASK OF HIS FATHER ABOVE,

FOR ALL WHO HAD SHUNNED HIM,REJECTING HIS LOVE.

NOT ONLY FOR ROMANS,WHO WOUNDED HIM THEN,

BUT FOR ALL RACES AND AGES OF MEN.

HE GRIEVED FOR THE GOSSIP, THE LIAR, THE THIEF,

FOR THOSE WHO WOULD WANDER AND LOSE THEIR BELIEF.

HE WEPT FOR OUR FAILINGS, BOTH GREAT AND SMALL,

HE CARRIED THEIR WEIGHT AND ATONED FOR THEM ALL,

EACH ONE OF US ADDED OUR MEASURE OF PAIN,

FOR SINS WE'VE COMMITTED, AND WILL DO AGAIN.

WITH LOVE AND COMPASSION HE PAID FOR EACH ONE,

AND OFFERED HIMSELF SAYING,"THY WILL BE DONE".

REPENTANT AND CONTRITE FORGIVENESS I SEEK,

HUMBLY I THANK HIM, ADMITTING I'M WEAK.

FOR THIS IS MY ASVIOUR, MY LORD AND MY KING,IN

DEEPEST DEVOTION HIS PRAISES I'LL SING.

I CANNOT REPAY HIM, BUT SOMEDAY WE'LL MEET,

THEN TEARS OF EMOTION I'LL SHED AT HIS FEET.
