A Rising

They hailed Him as King
Throwing their palms and praise at His feet
On a colt, not a stallion or steed

Two copper coins less than a penny
Drew more mercy from Christ
Than all in the treasury

Perfume of nard poured down his brow
This act of blatant waste
Caused unrest in the crowd

A passover meal He shared with His foe
When the hour came
He told him…just go

In a garden He prayed in anguish of soul
While the others slept
Sweat of blood flowed

Then came the arrest and the kiss of betrayal
Peter cut off an ear
But Jesus touching him, healed

And no one wanted His blood on their hands
So they passed the decision
To the people’s plans

They crucified Him for being a King
A week earlier they hailed Him
For the very same thing

But a King He is and the Lord of Lords
It was no mistake
The way it all went forth

What kind of King do we want to reign
One who knows what is best
Or succumb to our game

With Easter upon us and the beauty of Spring
Consider Christ’s death and resurrection
It’s a miraculous thing!
