WHAT LOVELIER FACE?

What Lovelier Face in all the world can there ever be?
Than The One that was once Wracked with pain...
Hanging... Alone... and Weary... on Calvary's Tree?
Could I let that Suffering to Rescue ME be in vain?

A Crown of thorns cutting His Brow,
No jewels, priceless in this world, could ever show...
Such Love and Care as The Drops of Blood now...
Congealing, as His Spirit Departs, so that I may grow!

Cold as marble in the grave clothes wrapped,
Alone in the darkness in The Tomb of stone...
Yet... only for as long as it was Meant to be - then unwrapped,
As Eternal Life Flowed back, so that He could Ascend to The Throne!

That Face, such Radiant Beauty,
Means All to me...
One day Its Dazzling Smile, no longer imagined,
Will Fall on me!!!

(An English Sonnet.)
