And So I Too Finally Became A Christ

And So I Too Finally Became A Christ


And so too I finally became a Christ


Not only in birth date and star-marked sky
But the trial is mine
The torture and tribulation
All the self-doubting and a deaf father
With the execution following naturally

Now my cross is calling to me
The seas are calling me down
I cannot fail them
So turn my face
Toward my Jerusalem
Knowing what waits for me there
And so well knowing all the while
I would have made a better Moses
