Are You Listening? (A Poem)

Matthew 13:9, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear!“

Did you hear the angels sing?

Of Christ the Lord the newborn king?

My Saviour gave up everything

Heavens joy for suffering

Were you listening?

Did you hear the words he said?

Or of the thousands that he fed?

He healed the sick and raised the dead

To escape death He plead

He plead!!

Were you listening?

Did you hear the people cry?

To crucify, yes crucify?

Did you hear the whip, the crack?

The blood now running down his back

Were you listening?

Did you hear that awful cry?

“Eli, lama sabachthani”

A Father watches His son die

Hells horrors born by the divine

That pain, that pain all mine, all mine !!!

Were you listening?

Were you listening?

Are you listening?
