what wondrous love!


greek word “agape”

God’s unconditional love

reaches for rebels


he humbly disrobed

to wash Judas’ dirty feet

king assumed servant role


he lay down own life

to pay ransom for captives

sweat pressed in garden


Jesus’ sacrifice

blood shed on altar for sin

perfect Lamb of God


remembering him

my first love, true love, best love

sing with gratitude

capital crimes


how dying

Jew on cross

draws all

of us to



bloody bruised body

exposed thirsty agony

shameless naked gore


sacrifice paid as ransom…

how do we understand love?
