Dichotomy of the Cross


On He, the Light, a darkness fell and there a great despair

The world went dark and it was night as our Lord was hanging there

The Water cries, He cries “I thirst” from dry lips of Adonnoi

‘Twas as if the Oceans of the earth have somehow now gone dry

The Shepherd King of glory now the sacrificial Lamb

The God of all the universe falls into the hands of man

Though He was sinless and knew no sin became now sin for us

Though He was rich yet for us poor, for the unjust One who’s Just

He who was Life, and Life itself, tasted death for every man

And became the seed that we most need to fulfill salvation’s plan

The Creator as a criminal, the Gain is counted loss

Eternal reduced to minimal, God’s Christ upon the Cross
