Broken

Broken world
Wounded by sin.
Aching with regret.
Groaning in agony.

Broken people
Mangled by hatred.
Bruised by misunderstandings.
Lost in despair.

Broken savior
Betrayed by friends.
Shamed by enemies.
Murdered by all.

Broken death
Removed of sting.
Swallowed in victory.
Defeated by Love.


Since the children have flesh and blood,
he too shared in their humanity so that by his death
he might break the power of him who holds the power of death...
that is, the devil...
and free those who all their lives
were held in slavery by their fear of death.
