It only took three hours
to undo thirty-three years of good.
And it took three days to restore
all that came before and more.
It was a sin to have Him surrender
a life that was rife with compassion.
But He had given to us great gifts.
He had instilled within us a burning faith,
a chance to believe what we cannot see.
It was He that through His life had given us hope,
and through His dying had showed us His love,
the greatest of these gifts. No greater gift
could a man give than to lay down His life
for His friends. God so loved the world
and we should be grateful for his gifts.
