It’s Not Over

When the day seems too long
When the night seems even longer


Worn by the world
Defeated and downtrodden

Evil has taken the battle
Night has overtaken the day

Black
Dark
Cold

How could this happen?

Burdened and beaten and bloodied
Ridiculed and wronged and rejected

Perfection pierced
Holiness defiled by my sin

Carrying each crime
Bearing the brutality
Accepting each offense as His own

Alone He faces death
The death that I deserve

Wreath of wrath
Torn by the tail of a whip
Crushed by the nails
Hung on display


We weep with the heaviness of it all
We feel the anguish of this tragedy
We place Him in the tomb

But…

We know that is not where He will remain

It’s not over yet.
