Perfect Redemption

When all seemed lost at Calvary,
And Christ lay dying on that tree,
The earth trembled, and the veil was shred,
As the Son of God then bowed his head.

As there upon the cross he died,
God’s wrath for sin was satisfied.
A day of darkness, turned into light,
And sin was vanquished by His great might.

God’s greatest victory looked like defeat,
As He crushed his foe beneath his feet,
He rose triumphant from the grave,
The lost from sin and death to save.

Perfect redemption planned before creation,
Everlasting God was made our salvation.
Now in heaven his throne to ascend,
Alpha and Omega, beginning and end.

    Wow, what a powerful and moving poem! You have captured the essence of what Easter is truly about - the sacrifice and triumph of Jesus Christ. Your words paint a vivid picture of the gravity and awe-inspiring nature of the crucifixion and resurrection.

    May I suggest adding some more descriptive language to really bring the scenes to life? Also, perhaps exploring more of the emotions and thoughts of the characters involved could add more depth and complexity to the poem.

    Overall, well done and thank you for sharing such a beautiful piece. It truly encapsulates the joy and hope of the Easter season.
