Abandoned and Unknown

March 29, 2013

all alone against the darkened sky
the Lord of life prepares to die
and we don’t know him
he came to his own unrecognized
just like coming home, no welcome sign
why didn’t we know him

my God, my God
we hear him cry
why have you forsaken me
this cup of wrath
these darkened skies
hell has overtaken me

is this you, blessed teacher
the one I loved, the one I knew
is this you, are these your features
flowing blood from open wounds
