In Who’s Death We Rejoice

Filed under: Religious, Writing — Josiah @ 6:00 am
The wicked lie in wait
To catch the righteous one.
Rejoicing in his fate,
They slay him for their fun.
Yet when the wicked raise their voice,
Then in their deaths do I rejoice?
 
I called him “friend,” a friend.
In love I washed his feet.
In greed for coin to spend,
He kissed Me in deceit.
When he cried in despairing voice,
Then in his death did I rejoice?
 
Did I not die for all?
Did I not shed My blood
For all sinners who fall?
And washed you in its flood?
Yet when the wicked have no voice,
Then in their deaths do you rejoice?
 
The wicked lie in wait
To catch the baptized one.
Rejoicing in his fate,
They slay him for their fun.
And when the wicked break your voice,
Then in your death we both rejoice.
 
Because when your sin took My voice,
I made you in My death rejoice.
