It is written we were made in His image.
It is said one day we can be like You.
That the Father sent You as the perfect example
of His glory personified.
I have followed Your story time and again.
I have wondered how you stood fast
beneath the hateful shouts and strikes
of all those You came to serve.
You have touched my heart and dreams
when I read of a Love,
whose dying breath begged
“Father, forgive them!”
of those who betrayed and hurt You.
Jesus, my beloved brother,
I believe with all I am
and will make Your story mine.
