Prayers for a Whole Life : Day 45

a prayer for the good
on Good Friday


on the way to the cross,
following my Lord,
let me say
     it is good

while I watch the crowds jeering,
when his suffering breaks my heart,
let me say
     it is good

when the sun you set in the sky
goes dark,
let me say
     it is good


when the veil comes down,
when the Holy of Holies is here before us,
let me say
     it is good


when it is finished,
even when he is gone,
let me say
     it is good


let me say "it is good."
let me try to convince myself once again
that this is not the end,
that you have a way
to redeem this tragedy.
let me say "it is good,"
because the more times I say it,
the more likely I am to believe it,
to trust that he
may still
bring
new
life
