48th Day Meditation

Poor goat.
Scape goat.
Scared and bleating.

Men's hands heavy upon your head.
Men's hands heavy upon your back.
Sin placed there.
So many hands.
So much sin.
What a heavy cross to bear.

Poor goat.
Scape goat.
Scarred and bleeding.

Men are beating you with rods.
Men hate you because you are
Now their sin.
So many stripes.
So much flogging.
What pains you suffer for their sake.

Poor goat.
Scape goat.
Scorned and breaking.

Men chase you away despising you.
Men push you outside the city wall.
Nail sin to the yoke.
Rejecting you.
Deserting you.
Now you are left to die alone.

Poor goat
Scape goat
Sacred and blessing.

God separated you from the sheep.
God cast you out because of their sin
On your back.
Man of Sorrows
Acquainted with grief.
Jesus remember me when you come into your kingdom.

"There is a green hill far away
Outside the city wall
Where the dear Lord was crucified
Who died to safe us all.

O, dearly, dearly has He loved..."
