Beauty in the Pain

In painful labor, filled with agony
Mingled with joy, as soul is brought fourth
Into world for first time
There is, both pain and beauty as

Life is welcomed in

As promise born, millennia before
Comes to fruition in the cries
Of small, baby boy
The Messiah come to earth to save

To bring to life those dead

And too, years on
As promised in Scriptures written
Long before He walked the earth, that baby now a man
Suffers and bleeds, in pain and torment

Bringing life to the world

As He bleeds upon the ground
Beaten, bruised, and shattered there by men
In all the pain and torment, in the agony and gruesome scene
Still, there is beauty as

Savior bears the weight of sin

There on the tree, as He hangs
Suffocating from the weight
Of own body and of sin
He dies, the earth shakes

And death is defeated

For that man, once infant born
To virgin in a stable
Was no ordinary man, no ordinary person sentenced
To die by crucifixion

He was not just a prophet
Nor was He one of many
He was, as He said He was
The very Son of God

Come to bring life to the earth
In infant’s cries, and final shout
As veil rent in two
All the earth was paid for

Every soul redeemed by that Man, the perfect One
Who died in our stead
That every man, who calls on Him
And acknowledges His sacrifice

Could be, brought into Life
Out of sin, into Him
Made whole and perfect by His blood
By His tender mercies

For such is He, our God who came to save
And makes beauty in the pain
