This One…Worthy


He hangs where shouts are horrific

His face bloodied bruised

And so strange

Observers up close contemptuous

But few comrades stand close range.

And not a complaint is uttered

And not a harsh look observed

Soldiers wield nails and hammers

The ones He wanted to serve

And nobody found a blemish

And nobody found a break

All testing approved this scapegoat

Raised up for redemption sake.

So now all the souls cry “worthy”

Those bowed at His Cross in faith

And follow the King exalted

In spite of a world’s disgrace.
