Lent Pic 2019


Lord, I know you really meant it.

You didn’t fool around in the holy city.

You didn’t pretend and hide, Jesus.

You walked straight into the problems,

and you never faked it.

You broke open the rules

that had lost their meaning.

You brought life back

to the dead law of the land.

You put spirit back into the cruel crowds

and courage into hearts.

You gave a day meaning.

That’s what I want – meaning, purpose,

A reason to do it, to say it, to feel it, to make it,

A reason for getting up and for facing it,

A reason to change it.

You knew that it was always all about meaning. It still is, Lord;

it has to mean something.

You looked for it and found it.

So will I, Jesus.
