I wrote the following poem for Easter of 2008. This isn't my poetry; the words are taken directly from Scripture.
John 1, Matthew 27, Isaiah 52:14
In the beginning was the word,
and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God.
He was with God in the beginning.
Through Him all things were made;
without Him nothing was made
that has been made.
He became flesh and lived among us.
In Him was life, and that life was
the light of men.
The light shines in darkness,
but the darkness has not understood it.
At the appointed time in history,
foretold by prophets of old,
a bloodied and beaten body,
marred beyond human likeness
was nailed to the cross.
The mid-day sun was replaced by
darkness over all the land.
He was heard to cry out;
"My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?"
Then, he gave up His spirit.
At that very moment, the curtain of the temple
was torn in two from top to bottom.
The law had been fulfilled.
Free access now to God the Father
through the living Word, Jesus Christ.
The earth shook that day, the rocks split
tombs broke open
and bodies were raised to life.
Those present exclaimed, "Surely
this is the Son of God!"
It is finished.
I've been redeemed,
To God be the glory!
