The Week the World Knows Well
This is the week the Christian knows.
This is the time of dreaded lows.
When angels weep, and demons lust
As palms curl brown in roadside dust.
This is the week when hate stood up.
This is the week He drank His cup.
Judas sold Light and Peter fell.
“Crucify him” the mob did yell.
This is the week when Pilate slayed.
This is the time a gibbet swayed.
The tomb is bare! Death’s angel fled!
Our souls will rise on Pascal bread.
