The darkest hour of the darkest day

“It is finished”
Earth’s darkest hour
Where is death’s victory?

Pierced and hanged
Flame snuffed in mocking ignominy
Undeservedly for my sins

Unwavering obedience
And unending love
Combined for sacramental grace

From the bush Moshe Rabbenu could see
The unconsuming fire which still burns
This is holy ground

Jesus’ humble acceptance
God’s holy will
Redeems my darkness
