Radical Love (St. Andrew’s Day)

Posted on: November 30, 2011

Radical love came down

Was born at midnight

          In Bethlehem

               In piercing cold

In blood and pain

Birthed in disdain

And in a humble manger lain

 

Radical love was hung

In sun’s climb; in skies bright

          In Jerusalem

               In spring-summer’s heat

In blood and pain

Criminal’s disdain

And in a rough-hewn tomb was lain

 

Radical love arise!

Blaze through death at dawn!

          In a fallen world

               In the cool of morn!

Redeem the blood death sentence of Adam, Eve and Cain!

The enemy’s moment, vain.
