At your birth
The angels sing;
In the heavens
In the temple
Seeking truth –
Your tender youth.
At the river,
On the mountain,
At the Supper,
In the garden,
Then, at last,
Comes your arrest –
So much hatred
Yet, when questioned,
You stay mute –
All are free
On the cross,
Your darkest hour;
Pain and sorrow
In the tomb,
Death cannot win –
You live forever,
