What is He Thinking Now?

This is a poem Justin wrote. I think it is awesome and it makes you really think about what Jesus went through for you and me.

What is He Thinking Now?


What was my Lord thinking as He beheld the scene?
As Judas Iscariot came forth and the betrayer’s kiss was placed,
While soldiers watched by torches’ light, for they did not know His face?
What was He thinking as He was beat unmercifully?
A reed, a robe, a crown of thorns, they mocked the King of kings.
Release a murderer or an innocent, that is the choice that Pilate gave,
“Crucify Him, Crucify Him,” their decision had been made.
What was my Lord thinking as He beheld the scene?

What was my Lord thinking as He went to Calvary?
As the growing mob stared onward, His mangled body to behold,
When the cross became so heavy that He fell beneath the load?
As a man was bidden to help Him with the terrible weight,
When He gazed upon Golgotha and knew this was His fate?
What was He thinking as He was nailed onto that tree,
As people jeered, “Come down, and then we will believe,”
What was my Lord thinking as He went to Calvary?

What was my Lord thinking as He hung upon that tree?
As He stared into His scorners’ eyes; the hatred and disdain,
When every nerve in His body was set on fire by pain?
As His breathing grew more difficult with the passing time,
When soldiers knelt beneath Him, His garments to divide?
He said, “Son behold thy mother; mother behold thy son,”
And then He cried, “It’s Finished!” His work on earth was done.
What was my Lord thinking as He hung upon that tree?


Better yet,
What is my Lord thinking NOW when He thinks of ME?
