Our Father's Forgiveness

Our Father's Forgiveness

They stripped Him of his garments
And scarred his back with stripes

They also spat upon Him
And his sweat poured in a splat

As they mocked and called Him king
His pain the pleasure of their muck

Put a crown of thorns upon his head
They swore he was their clown

When on the cross they nailed him
Our Dear Lord's spirit was not crass

He asked Our Father's forgiveness
Revenge was farthest from his thoughts.
