Broken / Restored: A Spoken Word Poem

From the very beginning it had been God’s intention
From the time of creation to have a perfect relationship with man
But then man chose to go with his own plans
And since then that relationship was broken

No longer perfect

torn apart,

separated

Far away from the One who created them.

But a loving God could not let that be the end

He longed to take that relationship and mend it
And make things right again
To bring man back to himself
For it is there where we belong
and without Him we go wrong

Lost and searching for own righteousness
Seeking it in mindless and countless rituals and mess
Trying to find our happiness in places and things that don’t last
And don’t satisfy, and we die and realize

We have been wrong all along, been fooled and deceived
Oh what lies we have been made to believe
By our long time Enemy, who from the start
Has set it upon his own heart to come after and tear apart
Anyone seeking after the Father.

But God our Father is far more powerful
than our worst enemy

And has claimed the victory over him
In Jesus name man too can claim this victory
And no longer have to be controlled by this fierce Adversary

Since the fall of man God had a plan
that would bring redemption to all

A gift of salvation for those who call on His name

A name that would cover us with grace and remove our shame
That name of Jesus! The one we must put our faith in and trust

Jesus though a king came to earth in a humble birth
Walked and lived among men, teaching of God’s love and the way to heaven

Jesus faithful to obey the will of the Father, like a lamb led to the slaughter
His life to all he offered to take our place for the punishment we deserved

Though no sin of his own he committed
yet like a criminal, he was led to be condemned

Mocked and ridiculed a crown of thorns placed on his head
Tried though found not guilty, yet he was still nailed to a tree
His precious blood he shed

“It is finished” Jesus cried as he hung his head down and died
Pierced on the side, pronounced dead
The punishment for our faults – completed

Yet as God promised death has been defeated
when Jesus came back to life

No grave can hold him down, nobody can deny

He is who he claims

The Name above all names
The Great I Am, the One who saves
The Perfect Redeemer, Our Beautiful Savior
Magnificent Creator, Forever He will reign!

For those who follow Him, He calls them friend
A relationship with God is restored once again
