The Divine Imperative

Silhouetted in moonlight -
Three empty crosses!
One of them had held the body
Of God Incarnate.

How could an eternal,
Omnipotent God, die?
Because Jesus' humanity
Was the mortal element
Of the Godhead.
In His birth, life, and death
As a man,
He was still Almighty God
And demonstrated this
Through His Resurrection,
Victoriously displaying
The matchless power
Of a Loving God.

This supreme act
Made salvation possible
And acceptance of Him
As Lord and Saviour,
