Carnage? Failure? Violence? Purpose? Death? Life?
What do you see looking at Calvary?

A hammer and a spike—
my gluttony to cleanse;
to do the same upon my own,
no way to make amends!

Three nails and a Cross—
my rue to overcome;
the total of its benefits—
impossible to sum!

The ugliest of tree—
such beauty to contain;
die before its Occupant—
eternal life to gain!

The ghastliest of deaths,
the ultimate results;
temporary Occupant
bearing all insults!

All shame, though, overcoming—
all victory to bring
to all and everyone proclaiming
Jesus Lord and King!
