Our Lord was crucified yesterday and died
His heartbroken mother, relatives and friends cried
For terrible acts evil satan-smitten men contrived.

All friends except John from the morbid scene ran.
Yet Jesus was closer to fulfilling His Father's Plan
Blood Bought Salvation for each mortal man.

The day after Jesus' burial unfolded very sadly
Satan cavorted and cajoled men to act madly
And chortled to see Jesus treated so badly.

From his mother's womb
to the borrowed tomb
He rested, as was God's Will,
until Sunday morning
When on His Resurrection

There would be Glorying.
