A new Poem for Maundy Thursday

Behold the LambGospel of John 1:29, 36

Cherish the lamb
fuzzy, warm, wriggling
His nose butting against your chest,
the door of your heart.
White, soft, snow his fur
rough silk, catch
a strand curling around your fingers

Hold Him, closer
breathe in his essence
gaze into his clear bright eyes.
Feel the staccato of his heartbeat
pulse underneath your hand:
Tomorrow He dies for you
understand
He will make your Passover
— complete.

  1. Thank-you for making the passover so real as grief over the devastation of my sin, that an innocent life should die for my peace with God.
