Lifted Up

Rough hewn wood
Driven into the ground
A cross-member erected
With a man nailed to it
The nails hammered
Through His arms
The sign above His head
Intended to mock Him
Labels Him the
King of the Jews
He is Jesus
He is the Son of God
He gave up His
Human life at the time
Of the evening sacrifice
To become the eternal
Sacrifice to make us clean
And new in the eyes of His Father
In the eyes of God
Lifted up from a life
Of give and take
Of earthly expectation
Of the unfair burdens
Places upon all of us
Of the more than earned
Punishments we each carry
Jesus hung on that cross
To free us from all of that
And free is what we are
If we just ask to that forgiveness
We are lifted up
Because of Jesus
