Almost There

Almost There





Dust rises to His ankles as He drags the wooden beam

To the sound of the whip, as it cracks and it stings

In pain and agony, He gasps the morning air

A little bit farther Son; almost there



Stretched out on the cross, lain on the ground

Thud after thud the heavy hammer pounds

Bones being pierced and nailed to the wood

With the smell of sweat and the gush of blood



Again the dust stirs as the wooden cross is raised

Some mourners wail, while others prayed

And His body shook, as the beam bottomed the hole

To jeers from the crowd to save his own soul



With a sponge to His lips; He tastes the rancid gall

A spear into His side, blood and water fall

He had call to The Father, of hope, of despair

A little bit farther Son; almost there



And three days later, He is raised from the dead

All can be forgiven by His precious blood shed

Ransomed by the whispers of God’s love and care

A little bit farther Son; almost there
