The Deposition

The Deposition 

 

Slowly the decent, His body battered so viciously attacked

 

Darkness of man’s soul, such hate evil does attract 

 

With the chaos of sin, the confusion of sinner’s senses 

 

Greed, to win, maneuvering of self-centered priorities, selfish fences

 

Struggle upright, not to release let go or drop

 

Strain through the pain and suffering, please mercifully stop

 

Since time began till this very moment

 

Pride, arrogance, disdain, intolerance, without atonement 

 

Without a tear, or shame 

 

Many refused to speak His Name

 

Even with the knowledge, with witness and truth

 

Faith today is considered a weakness, a character aloof

 

It is this reason, His Love and Care

 

He died on that Cross, sins He did bare

 

This Abused Christ, This  Sacrificial Lamb

 

Removed from the Cross, His Death for the Damn 

 

Read this poem again and again

 

Can you sense how it might have been to remove from the Cross this God, this Man

 

Let not the darkness of man’s soul cause us to take flight

 

Look toward that Cross, This Christ, Our Saving Light
