You Looked Down

You looked down
From Your Cross
To behold faithfulness.
There stood Your Mother.

You looked down
You beheld her look of grief,
Her suffering Your pain.
You wed it
To Your Own,
Presenting all
Before Your Father’s holy throne.

  1. How lovely the melding of Mary’s pain with Jesus’ as the offering of expiation to the Father. I wish more people would understand and love Mary and her contribution with Jesus to our salvation.
