    This is a poem that a good friend of mine wrote while he was in prison 3 years ago. He said he woke up at 2am with these words running through his head. He grabed a pencil and wrote this down:

    SO YOU THINK THAT NAILS HELD HIM THERE.
    WITH GREAT SHAME, SOME DON'T CARE.
    AND EVEN THESE THINGS OUR SAVIOUR KNEW.
    BUT STILL HE SUFFERED FOR ME AND YOU.
    THE VERY ONES WHO DID IT HE FORGAVE.
    HE KNEW HE WOLDN'T STAY IN A GRAVE.
    THEY MOCKED HIM, SPAT ON HIM, PUT A THORNY CROWN ON HIS HEAD.
    THEY KNEW THAT SOON HE WOULD BE DEAD.
    FOR HOURS ON END HE SUFFERED IN PAIN.
    HE DID ALL THIS JUST FOR YOUR GAIN.
    WITH A SWORD THEY PIERCED HIS SIDE.
    HE SAID "IT IS FINISHED", THEN HE DIED.
    BUT IT WASN'T THE END, YOU SHOULD KNOW,
    BECAUSE AFTER 3 DAYS, HE ROSE.
    HE CAME IN THE FLESH TO SAVE OUR SOULS.
    WHAT HELD HIM THERE YOU SHOULD KNOW.
    NOT NAILS, NOT STRENGTH OF FELLOW MAN,
    LOVE HELD HIM THERE WITH STRETCHED OUT HANDS.
    SO YOU COULD BE COVERED BY THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB,
    I THANK MY DEAR JESUS THAT I AM.

    Great poem and post. I'm betting the author turned his life around when he got out.

    He sure did Dave. I was there the day he got saved and baptized. It was awesome. This guy can quote scriptures from the Bible now. He has done a complete 360. God is awesome.
