Poems :  Bought at such cost
 


With those same hands
nailed, and He screaming,
calling out in His humanity
at the searing, slicing, and pounding pain;
allowing for such humiliation,
His divinity known by this sacrifice,
and, aye, known by those
pierced and bleeding, sinless hands.

Aye, those same hands,
those wondrous, most beautiful hands,
how they reach down to me in my sorrow,
and lift me up, to wipe away my dreary tears.
Cradling me, comforting me,
removing my affliction.

I could not know joy,
could not know Love,
without such a cost
borne by those same hands.

 Re: Bought at such cost
I love this poem, Richard!
It spells out in great detail, in both word and imagery, the high price that Jesus paid to redeem mankind.
I would like to see this poem read out on Good Friday in Churches, it truly would bring home the horrendous death which Jesus suffered.
I love the simplicity of the poem, it is very appealing to me as a reader.
Thank you for sharing this timeless, enduring write, Richard, which flows so effortlessly from your creative pen. Another stellar inking from your literary repertoire, Richard. Blessings always...

Hi, nightmute.
It's always wonderful to read a poetry that level where we can feel Christ's Divinity in the wrapping.
Thanks for sharing with us this poetic jewel.
Hugs,
Roberto
