Guilt Carrier

As the charges rung out

He lowered his head

 

The shame burnishing in His cheeks

Of adulterers, liars and murderers

 

God’s fiery wrath laid on His shoulders

 

The punishment of billions inflicted on Him

 

The life connection with God broken

The open door of love closed to Him

Rejection from His eternal Father

 

A final breath

 

Finally justice for all the hurt, the wronged and the wounded

Finally restoration for the broken

Sentence delivered, case closed

Jesus declared guilty, humanity goes free
