GOOD FRIDAY AND EASTER PSALM

 

  1. Sure, Mary wasn’t there, beside that Cross:
      Jesus, with Mary and John, it’s not a photograph!
     
  2. For they were crude and cruel days and he was naked:
      all our pictures of the Cross are images and stories.
     
  3. What Jesus really looked like we’ll never know:
      our pictures of him are not true likenesses -
     
  4. there are so many faces of Christ, two millennia full:
      black or white, yellow or brown, and all are true.
     
     
  5. The gospels were not mere history, but stories to hear:
      my devotion and prayer today, sometimes with music.
     
  6. So how can I celebrate Easter, it isn’t a lie:
      resurrection enables one image to stand for them all.
