I don’t know if

He would have shrieked and writhed with pain


I don’t know if

He just winced and twitched in silent suffering


I don’t know how

He bore the villainous scourging


I don’t know how

He endured the jeering and scorn


All I know is that

He took it all!


He looked at me and at you

With eyes of compassion and a heart of love


And knew it had to be Him up there

On the Cross to spare us all from sin’s lethal snare


This love defies finite logic

After all, why die to love?


This Love of Jesus

Was an answer to justice


Hard to fathom this mystery, right?

But when you believe, you know it all.



“And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world.” (1 John 2:2)

    Raj Nandini ma’am, really it is an expression of inner faith through this poem, Jesus’ unfathomable love towards all mankind. Jesus is crucified & scourged for deliverance of all human being. He is our Saviour.
