The Web Poetry Corner - Ron Bliss - Who Crucified Christ

Who Crucified Christ

by

Ron Bliss

Who crucified the blameless Christ,
And nailed Him to the Tree,
Who caused the lamb to suffer,
And go through such agony,

Who betrayed the Master,
Supposedly a friend,
Who fled when they arrested Him,
For fear it was the end,

Who denied he knew this man,
Not once, not twice, but three,
Who crucified the blameless Christ,
And nailed Him to the tree.

Who delivered Him to Pilate,
Bound in heavy chain,
Who took a stick and beat Him,
That He might feel the pain,

Who pushed and shoved, then called him names,
That He might know disgrace,
Who gathered spittle in their mouth,
Then spat upon His face,

Who laughed when He would stumble,
On His way to Calvary,
Who shouted taunts when He walked by,
And mocked Him endlessly,

Who struck the nails that pierced the flesh,
And caused the Lamb to bleed,
Who, I ask, is guilty of,
This dreadful, dreadful deed,

Who made a crown of many thorns,
Then placed it on His head,
Who pierced His side with a soldier’s sword,
To be sure that He was dead,

I crucified the blameless Christ,
And I betrayed a friend,
I denied I knew Him thrice,
And fled before the end,

I beat Him, shoved Him, Kicked Him,
Then spat upon His face,
I laughed and mocked, then taunted Him,
That He would know disgrace,

Yes....... I struck the nails, that pierced the flesh,
That caused the Lamb to bleed,
I am the one, so guilty of,
This dreadful, dreadful deed,

I placed the thorn upon His head,
I shoved the saber in,
Do you know how I did it?
I did it with my sin,

He endured this suffering,
It's something that He chose,
This Christ that died, was buried,
On the third day, He arose,

It was my sin that put Him there,
My sin that did Him in,
He drew me near in comfort,
Then He forgave that sin.
