Father forgive them, for they know not what they do
(Luke 23:34).

Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in paradise
(Luke 23:43).

Woman, behold your son: behold your mother
(John 19:26-27).

My God, My God, why have you forsaken me
(Matthew 27:46 and Mark 15:34).

I thirst (John 19:28).

Father, into your hands I commit my spirit
(Luke 23:46).

It is finished (John 19:30).

 "My God, My God, Why have you forsaken me?"
 (Matthew 27:46 and Mark 15:34).
The Word of Abandonment
(photo by Pastor Keith)

Where will tomorrow go?
All fear and mist,
all darkness, the primal scream
without release.
My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?
I walk the highways, broken glass and stone,
Everything is rust.
All the windows rolled up,
cars tinted dark see me invisible.
I see the cross everywhere, empty,
The thinnest hope,
echoes of promise
breaking the stillness of the night.
