"How Could You," an Easter Resurrection Day Poem by Ronald Ginther

"HOW COULD YOU?"

How could you suffer a disciple's betrayal, an illegal arrest and trial and a mob's hateful tauntings for me? for me?

But you did! You did!

How could you endure floggings and crown of thorns and the soldiers' mocking abuse for me? for me?

But you did! You did!

How could you, innocent, be condemned for false crimes and be sentenced to death for me, for guilty me?

But you did! You did!

How could you, dazed and bloody and collapsing, carry a heavy cross through the streets of Jerusalem for me? for me?

But you did! You did!

How could you let the soldiers strip you naked and suffer shame and humiliation before the people and your own mother and followers for me? for me?

But you did! You did!

How could you let heathen Romans nail you to the cross and crucify you to pay the sin-penalty for me? for me?

But you did! You did!

How could you bleed out all your precious Lamb's blood to the last drop for me? for me?

But you did! You did!

How could you endure being forsaken by your own Father in heaven for me? for me?

But you did! You did!

How could you suffer Gethsemane and the Cross, then hell itself for me? For me?

Yet you did! You did!

How could you rise from hell and the grave and then grant the promise of resurrection to me? to me? But you did! You did!

HAPPY RESURRECTION DAY!
