Terrible Suffering

Knowing what was to come
Christ knowing fully
the terrible suffering
the fruits of the choice
he was making
there in the garden
before our God

Such was the backdrop
the words he uttered
crying out to God
that the cup wouldn’t
have to come to his lips
that he wouldn’t drink
of the bitterness, sin

Drinking of our sin,
in the garden choosing,
taking the cup to his lips
waiting for the betrayer
the mob that would come
turning himself over
accepting the suffering for us
