I Saw the Face of Jesus


I saw the face of Jesus
shining through a misty cloud
His face and hands and eyes
were painted on a weathered shroud

Who rendered such a work of art?
It was by Jesus grace
He painted his own portrait
with the blood upon his face

His radiance shown through
the woven fabric as he lay
Entombed within a chamber
where his spirit would not stay

And so he left a silhouette,
upon a fragile shroud
I think Iíve seen his countenance
within a misty cloud

A darkness wrapped around me
has brought sorrow to my days
And now I look for Jesusí face
within the misty haze

He painted His own picture with His blood... but He also painted the picture of our salvation. This is a beautiful piece, and I'm glad that I came across it during my first visit in.. well, over a year!!!
God Bless you, my friend.
