Remember: Lent Week Two



Do you recall

Our wedding day?

Face to face,

Clasping hands tightly,

Your veil removed—

You were mine,

I AM yours


Why are you

At this corner,

Selling your worth,

Eyes looking down?

Why are you

Naked and bloody,

Abandoned and forlorn?

You are mine


Don’t you remember

That I AM

Your Maker-Husband

Who loves you?

O! Let me

Take your face

In both hands

Eyes meeting mine


Call to mind

Only my love,

Though you’ve run

Far from me—

Do not flinch

Or turn away;

Willingly I forgive,

I AM yours


Belovéd, called one,

My beautiful bride,

Leave your sin,

Be made clean

In my blood;

Remember that you

Are forever mine—

I AM yours.
