Can I bear this for your name?
You who bore my pain
Took away my shame
How can I complain?
Of thorns in my side
When you bled and died
For my sake?

When it feels too much to bear
And I’m close to despair
I remember how
Thorns were made into a crown
On your royal head pressed down.
How can I complain
Of thorns in my side
When you bled and died
For my sake?

Because of your sacrifce
You relate with pain
You felt the wrath of God
You took it in my place.
And though my trial seems so big
By faith I’ll follow you
You walked the road of suffering
By grace I walk it too.

    I take it you wrote that one yourself. I’m collecting articles, poems, and scriptures that will hopefully one day encourage and inspire my little men, particularly Judah, in the lot that has been given to them. I’ve been putting them in their baby books, and I think I’ll print this out and stick it in there, too! Thanks!

    Great poem, Danielle. And Bri, what a wonderful “hope chest” for a guy.

    I love seeing more poetry on these blogs lately. Can you talk about the inspiration behind it at all? I love knowing the background on poetry that is so heartfelt. Maybe I’m just nosey 🙂 I especially like the “thorns weaved into a crown” image. What an image to remember when I encounter my little thorns in the side.

    I agree with Laurie…the thorns weaved into a crown was such a telling picture for me. Your poem brought tears to my eyes and hope during trying circumstances in my life right now. Thank you…

    Briana, that is a great idea of things to add to a baby book! Kristin, I’m glad to poem was able to bring hope to you during this time, that was the main purpose of the poem. And I have to add that I hadn’t thought about putting my own poetry/lyrics on the blog until Kristen and Glory Be both put their beautiful poetry on, so thanks for the inspiration, ladies!
