Crushing Sorrow

The moment had come
the betrayer on the way
alone in the garden
Christ going to pray

Crushing sorrow
that this day had come
the cup of suffering
waiting for his lips

There in the garden
Christ actively choosing
though fear gripped him
following the master’s will

Taking the cup from its place
putting it to his lips
drinking the bitter harvest
taking on our sins
