Day 301: Jesus wept

Today's Reading: John 11

Did Jesus weep
Because his friend
Had suffered and was dead?
Did he mourn deeply
As we do
With sorrow and with dread?

Did Jesus weep
For his best friends
Did not yet understand?
Did he feel lonely
For dearest ones were
Blinded to his plan?

Or did he weep
To know that for
His own great glory's sake
His most beloved,
Gentle one must twice
Death's evil face?

Perhaps he wept
With great relief--
As one who loves so dear--
To know the battle's
End was soon
And victory was near!
