Passion in Gethsemane

The poem below imagines Jesus’ prayer to His Heavenly Father asking God to take the upcoming suffering away from Him.  I can’t imagine the wrenching pain this separation caused to Our Heavenly Father and His Only Begotten Son but I know it was a singular event that became the bridge that is our only connection back to Jehovah.  I hope you have a blessed Good Friday and remember Jesus’ great sacrifice for us.

Jesus:
Oh Father, take this cup from me

Jehovah:
My dearest Son, you will set mankind free.

Jesus:
Father may Your Will be done….

Jehovah:
You will knit the breach, my Son

Jesus:
Father, My tears fall like bloody rain!

I cannot bear the spiritual pain

and I am afraid, this body so frail.

Jehovah:
My Son, you will not fail!

Your sacrifice is the final end

and a perfect, permanent mend.

Jesus:
Is there no other way?

Jehovah:
Keep the faith dear Son, do not stray.

Jesus:
I will do as you command.

Jehovah:
Soon, by My right hand you will stand.

Jesus:

The burdensome sin of man

almost breaks me. Please hold my hand.

Jehovah:
But at some point I must let you go.

Jesus:
Leaving me will tear my soul you know,

for we have never been apart.

Jehovah:
Turning my back will break my heart!

But have faith my Son, this will soon be done.

And I will hold you close when we have won.

Satan’s hold on earth will break;

hold on for our creation’s sake.

You will free them from their sin!

Your sacrifice the final, perfect win.
