Hey, let me tell you ‘bout the Friday  I had
It really started last night, then went terribly bad
Dinner with friends, a feast of food and some drink
Then we walked to the hills ‘cause I needed to think

I withdrew and knelt down, hoped my friends would pray too
But they kept falling asleep; they didn’t know what I knew
That I came to be sacrificed, God’s only Son
Seeking My Father, I said, “May Your will be done.”

Then the crowd busted in, the priests and armed guards
A kiss of betrayal that accompanied swords
Seized and arrested, a biased hearing and trial
The crows of a rooster, pain of Peter’s denial

Mocked and beaten by guards, false testimonies again
“Are you the Messiah?” I answered, “I am.”
Then led before Romans, found undeserving of death
“Are you the king of the Jews?” I replied simply, “Yes.”

The mob was unruly and easily persuaded
To shout, “Crucify him!” The priests were elated
A flogging so brutal, a crown of thorns on My head
Stripped, mocked, and spit upon, then away I was led

To the Place of the Skull, to be crucified
Nailed to a cross, My arms spread out wide
The mocking continued and insults were hurled
As I gave up My spirit and died for the world

Then wrapped up in linen and laid in a tomb
But I don’t plan on staying; I’ll be out of here soon
Watch for Me in three days; I’ll live and I’ll rise
Friday is finished; Sunday’s a surprise!

About Arrow

Hi and welcome! My pen name is Arrow. The word “arrow” intrigues me because it has two meanings that describe my passions. One, it is an instrument used offensively to reach a target, and two, it shows the way. As a believer and follower of Jesus Christ, my goals are to live for Him, lead others to Him, and glorify the Heavenly Father. I pray that the stories, poems/song lyrics, and devotional thoughts I share on this website may always be inspired by the Holy Spirit and aligned with the truths found in God’s Word. My hope is that the words may penetrate your heart and point the way to a closer relationship with the Savior. I look forward to sharing my journey with you. Experiencing what God has in store is bound to be exciting! May you be blessed! ~ Arrow
