Preparing for Your Death(Holy Thursday)

You needed to prepare,
Yourself and others for your death.
Knowing the hour was near.
Fighting back the fear.

You ate with those you loved,
One last time before you died.
Teaching them how to remember,
Your sacrifice forever.

Take this bread and eat.
Take this cup and drink.
Your body broken for all of us,
Your blood to be spilled out on the cross.

During your Last Super,
You revealed it to your people,
That someone would betray,
You in every way.

Judas left the table,
To sell you to those,
Entrusted with the laws,
That told them you were flawed.

For healing on the Sabbath,
Proclaiming you are God,
Ministering to sinners,
And preaching unhindered.

You retreated to the Garden,
To pray to Father God,
With tears flowing from your eyes,
Asking for this cup to pass three times.

Not your will,
But God’s be done,
No time to back out now,
Here comes the crowd.

Led by Judas Iscariot,
The disciple that betrayed you,
For thirty pieces of silver
,Into enemy hands he would deliver.

The unblemished Son of the Father.
Fully Human and fully God.
To a fate you did not deserve,
By a sentence unjustly served.
