DAY OF CRUCIFIXION

Robert Burnham

 

Did you see the blackened sky

As they nailed Him to the cross

Did you see tears in Mary's eyes

Did you contemplate her loss

Or were your eyes shut tight

Self-blinded to the cost

 

Did you listen when they mocked Him

Did you hear them curse His name

Did you hear the silence of His disciples

As they turned and ran in shame

Or were your ears waxed shut

To the lonely cries of His pain

 

Did you shout out in protest

At the cruel things that were done

Did you forget how to speak

As though the cat had your tongue

Were your lips glued tight together

While they crucified God's Son.
