      His Last Earthly Days

Following our precious Savior
on his journey to the cross.
We don’t know where we are going
or the over whelming loss.

We are shouting “Halleluiah”
as we hold palm branches high,
unaware our blessed Savior
knows He’s going forth to die.

At betrayal in the garden
He still heals the soldier’s ear
and before it even happens
He’s forgiven Peter’s fear.

On the Cross, he asks forgiveness
for all those who caused his death.
Forgiving of wicked sinners
was Lord Jesus to his death.

How realistically beautiful you've described our Lord!  It's hard to imagine how He could bear all His suffering, willingly, with such a forgiving spirit.

Your flowing poem brings the message home, very clear.

Thank you and God bless,
  Rae

Oh, Joyce, I want to sing this one as a hymn in church too!  I love the whole poem, but I particularly love the perspective from which you wrote.
