Humanity's Rising

by Regina

Cruciform waters, mellowing, always crystalline,
drink of it, humanity, God's passion spring,
in the lightning lit storms raging
in the Lord's blessed heart,
His budding roses torn apart,
as others prime in dewy shoots,
rise from the earth, resolute.

What costs nothing, can't ever be measured ?
It's a hug from a child that is to be treasured.

Sinner's Lament

by Regina

Flogged and falling,
He carried the heavy, rough, and splintered cross,
Sinner's lament, it was because of us.

Down I go into the abyss of shame, of darkness,
swearing I'll walk the righteous walk,
but come up short, only talk,
Lamb of Love and Patience, forgives,
Sinner's lament, it was because of us.

Pierced, His cries still reverberate in humanity's shadowy heart,
Crimson on purple, exhaustion, dehydration,
Sinner's lament, it was because of us.
