The One I See

What did He feel
As He began in His mother's arms
Warmly concealed
Safely sealed from any harm,
What was it He could feel

As He grew encircled in that love
And unknown days began to peal
While men pushed away that kindness
No room for You Lord Jesus,
How rejected did He feel

Then as they knelt down at His feet
Longing for a meal
And ate abundantly of fish and bread
Listening intently to His gentle voice,
What longing did He feel
As they rushed to Him for healing
His comfort to appeal
To rise upon their feet and walk away-
A gladder day to meet,
What heartache did He feel

As with zeal they shouted hallelujah
Laying branches on His way
Then with inner heart revealed
They cried, crucify,
How painful would that feel

As He prayed there, all alone
And staggered up that chosen hill
Every step of bleeding pain
Crying Father, help me Your will fulfill,
What was that to feel
As they hammered those loving hands
Onto that rugged cross, to seal
Him, as the guilty one
To suffer all our grief and pain,
What agony did He feel

As the skies grew dark with sin
And the Father turned away
Our sin, His Son to steal
For a purpose only they could understand,
How lonely would He feel

Then as He cried out, It is finished
And let His spirit be released
His body placed in the tomb, concealed
To rest in God's abiding peace
What fulfillment would He feel
To rise victorious
Enclosed in love to ever give
The cry, I felt it all, I took your place
So spirit death you will never feel
But know everlasting life to live.

Soft Whispers from
Derry's Heart Poems © 2005

One response was given by the innkeeper when Mary and Joseph
wanted to find a room where the Child could be born.
The innkeeper was not hostile; he was not opposed to them,
but his inn was crowded; his hands were full; his mind was preoccupied.
This is the answer that millions are giving. Like a Bethlehem innkeeper,
they cannot find room for Christ. All the accommodation in their hearts
already taken up by other crowding interests. Their response may not be atheism,
or a hard defiance. But it can merely be a preoccupation and the feeling
of being able to get on reasonably well without the Lord Jesus.
Billy Graham

Oh what loss, to love only this life..
and not see why Jesus suffered so..to give us eternity..
He went through so much to completely save us..forever
