Religious law had had its way,

In the form of Caiaphas’ Court.

Guilty!  They condemned Him, before day;

Bigotry of the basest sort.

They broke their law, they bent their rule,

The devil had found some useful tool.



Resurrection’s coming.

Don’t you forget it.

It will be here in a little bit.

And it will be never ending.

Yes, Resurrection’s coming.

Night can last but so long.


Pilate listened with some respect,

Found Him not guilty by his law.

Seemed as though he might protect,

But pressure found its pitiful flaw,

And Barabbas was released.

As reward to celebrate the present feast.       – eab, 4/1984

“Love Divine”


Love divine, all loves excelling,
Joy of heaven to earth come down;
Fix in us thy humble dwelling;
All thy faithful mercies crown!
Jesus, Thou art all compassion,
Pure unbounded love Thou art;
Visit us with Thy salvation;
Enter every trembling heart.


Breathe, O breathe Thy loving Spirit,
Into every troubled breast!
Let us all in Thee inherit;
Let us find that second rest.
Take away our bent to sinning;
Alpha and Omega be;
End of faith, as its Beginning,
Set our hearts at liberty.


Come, Almighty to deliver,
Let us all Thy life receive;
Suddenly return and never,
Never more Thy temples leave.
Thee we would be always blessing,
Serve Thee as Thy hosts above,
Pray and praise Thee without ceasing,
Glory in Thy perfect love.


Finish, then, Thy new creation;
Pure and spotless let us be.
Let us see Thy great salvation
Perfectly restored in Thee;
Changed from glory into glory,
Till in heaven we take our place,
Till we cast our crowns before Thee,
Lost in wonder, love, and praise.


Charles Wesley married this date (4/8/1749) to Miss Sarah Gwynne.
