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
