Love of a king

Swooped in villainy and fury
They marched him to Calvary
His feet were feeble
the torture seemed unending
His blood was spilled
His skin was ripped
brutalized with thorn
from dusk to dawn

A humble face waxed with shame
a body weakened with pain
He was beaten and spat on
his love was trampled upon
He wept and moaned
while they cheered and roared
no one seemed to care
the very ones he came to save

He was called a criminal
but he cradled his countenance
he ignored the betrayal
though they were very construal
he came for a reason
a price he considered golden
their lives he chose to save
as he fought the snare of the grave

Many haven't stopped to wonder
about the death, birth and manger
Millions still dispute it
others call it a mere deceit
Eggs for Easter
for Christmas it's santa
seems someone's biggest reality
is putting him in obscurity

I know the truth
and that is my proof
the deed was done
an accomplished mission
I have seen the light
and I will let it shine
'Tis a perfect reality
he is the risen king
