Good poem about the ironies of Calvary
I thought it would be good to share this poem which was published in the latest Bulletin Gold.
The poem was written by Edd Sterchi, who preaches for the church in Kentucky.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did:
The Ironies of Calvary
By Edd Sterchi
Man of sorrows, Prince of Peace,
Son of Joy, Man of griefs,
Wounded healer, Rejected King,
Earth’s disdain, Salvation’s wing.
Friend of sinners, Friendless One,
Men charge sin to the Holy Son,
Innocent, yet judged with guilt,
Had no home, but mansions built.
The irony Christ was and gave,
Buried, yet o’ercame the grave,
The irony Christ makes in you,
Buried in Him, you’ll rise anew.
