The Cross' Greatest Pain by: Frances M. McCrory-Meservy April 3, 2007
The greatest pain Jesus felt that day The greatest pain that Jesus felt sway
Were not the nails in hands and feet That would pierce His tender heart
That held Him on the cross some say Was when his Father looked away
It wasnít physical pain thatís fleet. Because our sins had set him apart.
The Greatest pain Jesus felt The greatest pain Jesus felt in every way
Was not the whip that lashed Were all the sins of the world
It was not the blows that were dealt That was placed on him that day
Or the angry words that flashed. He became a curse as salvation unfurled.
The greatest pain Jesus felt Oh the pain he felt as salvation sped
Was not the thorns on his head As He freed us from guilt and disdain
That brought many a welt So we can come to our Father in good stead
As it pierced His skin till he bled. Without wrinkle, blemish or refrain.
The greatest pain Jesus felt Heart pain is not fleeting
Was not the spear that pierced his side It makes us want to die you see
As the final blow was dealt Jesus was heard repeating
He was past the pain that would bind. Father why have you forsaken me
To all these things He cried not a word. His father could not look at strife
He knew they were as fleeting as the past. The sin was more than could gather
The physical pain was bearable to us ward. Jesus in pain gave up his life
The unbearable pain would be the last. His heart burst without his Father.
