A Passion For His Stripes

of black and blue
and red
of gashes and slashes
and stripes
of hits and harm
and hurt

He bows and stumbles
and falls
He kneels and bends
and crumbles
He gasps and cries
and moans

for my healing and help
and guiding
for my blessing and loving
and keeping
for my hoping and holding
and saving

for my saving
