A Hymn for Good Friday

by Kim on March 28, 2007

Pilate poses,
Christ exposes -
power challenged and defied;
Christ appearing,
people jeering -
sin and righteousness collide.
Life the winner,
new creation;
for the sinner,
full salvation:
Christ the Lord is crucified!
Christ the Lord is crucified!

‘Midst the shambles
soldiers gamble,
bandits braying at his side;
earth is shaken,
dead awaken
at the dreadful deicide.
An absurd day -
wait! - surprises! -
on the third day
Jesus rises:
Christ the Lord is glorified!
Christ the Lord is glorified!

(Suggested tune: Infant holy)

Gracious, I thought at first this was another satirical work as I missread Pilate as Pilates..

Hmmm

Does that tell us something about the hymn, or something about you I wonder? ;)
