It was on the Thursday


Back to the city
Sharing Passover with his friends,
showing them how to serve,
washing their feet,
serving at table,
being God incarnate
layering everything with new meaning,
the depth of which they could only grasp
after his death.
And, after instituting a memorial,
he went out into the garden
to await his betrayer's kiss.
Knowing agony
but remaining resolute
to do God's will.
Off he goes to arrest and trial
witnessing all his friends
fleeing and failing
yet still looking on them
with eyes full of love
and a heart full of forgiveness
and a mind resolved
to save the world.
Hallelujah - what a Saviour.
