Nails were driven
Into His Hands,
His side was pierced
His back was beaten
His head was bruised.
Held up not just by nails
But His will to please the Father.
His love for us
Cost Him everything-
The air in his lungs ceased for us
His blood flowed on our behalf.
His love did not end with words
But with actual nails
Driven through His flesh.
His love went beyond being inconvenienced
And did not stop at merely being a good example,
A good teacher
He went the distance
And did not downplay what we truly needed.
Christ took upon His own body
what we ultimately deserve:
