ELOI, ELOI LAMA SABACHTHANI


ELOI, ELOI LAMA SABACHTHANI

 

I sat between the pages of Genesis and Revelation,
To gaze upon a beginning; the creation of mankind
With Adam and Eve I read the garden conversation
As scholars tread the scripture new mysteries to find

~  ~  ~

Feeling each letter of the commandments in stone
As the staff became a snake amid the Exodus pages
The threesome in the fire that were never left alone
From beginning to end, it would astound the sages

~  ~  ~

I wept inside the secret place of the most high God
Before walking the valley of the shadow of death
I observed the Red Sea as Moses lifted his rod
He obeyed the Almighty, the giver of all breath

~  ~  ~
 
I listened in reverence as the parables he spake
He rebuked unclean spirits commanding they flee
His death would draw nigh; a lamb at the stake
My God, my God why hast thou forsaken me?

~  ~  ~

I bowed on my knees and to the holies I cried
As the tears began to roll through my sins
The gift of life through the scars in his side
With my God ..... I then made amends


ELOI, ELOI, lama sabachthani
