It Was Not the Nails That Held You

My rebellion was the spit that flew in Your face.

My apathy was the scourge.

My pride screamed down the Via Dolorosa.

You were nailed for my every single selfish urge.
 
But it was not the nails
that held You there that day.

It was Your love for me.

I have struggled understanding this love.
Help me, Jesus, fully believe.

In Your love.
In Your love, so beautiful.
