Because of the Joy Set Before Him, He Endured



(By Rachel Joyce)


Joy lay on the horizon

Like a distant, rosy-hued cloud,

As He took each painful step

Up Golgotha’s dusty hill.


Eyes firmly fixed on the joy,

He laid His lacerated back

On the rough wood, stretched

Out His hands, and waited,
