The Risen Glory




Cross-made-homely, scorn-crowned, scarred-

the Crucified

His hands in flames


and feet


held captive by the nails


               that tore


His man-garb,


Splattered blood


on windy ground.


The sky


                fell dark


and ominous


The vale, dark-rent and torn asunder


                               while the thunder drowned


the drone of earth


                       As God - as Man


bowed down His head


                         surrendered up His soul


and died. The Crucified--


and It is Finished.


Finished--


                            Father-grace-bestowed


The Son-born-wrath


The anguished face, dark sky


and grace


washed over me


These beams of mercy


flood my soul


with light--------------


His life


                       for mine


                                      The creature-homely


Drinking fully


Deeply-


Glory, glory!


Finished grace


And mercy


                     Wholly


                     Richly satisfied


The blood applied.
