Gathering Together

From the Man of Sorrows

 

The Jesus of the Cross explains His heart to all who would take the time to listen:

 

The depth of my love for you pierced my heart,

The value of your being raised me from the dead,

I have withheld nothing of myself from you, nor will I ever consider it.

 

In tears I ached with you,

In shame I shared your sadness,

I have withheld nothing of myself from you, nor will I ever consider it.

 

In travail of body I carried your troubles,

In humiliation I have seen your wounds,

I have withheld nothing of myself from you, nor will I ever consider it.

 

I know your shattered spirit,

I see your shaken soul,

I have withheld nothing of myself from you, nor will I ever consider it.

 

I have clothed you in my mantle of grace,

I have enfolded my wings around you,

I have withheld nothing of myself from you, nor will I ever consider it.

 

I have not stopped being at your side,

Nor have I ceased to count your tears,

I have withheld nothing of myself from you, nor will I ever consider it.

 

I have never withheld myself, I am not withholding myself now and I will never withhold myself -

I love you too much.

Greater love has no one than this, than he lay down his life for his friends. (Jn 15:13)
