Poem

God on a Stick
By Paul Hobbs

They spit on his face and then they crucify him. 
Jesus our Lord
He dies as a sinner
He dies as a blasphemer, 
as an idolater, 
as one who denies God
As one who betrays him

I stand before the cross and wonder
He is not guilty of these things but takes our place

He dies as one who boasts, 
who gossips
As one who dishonors his parents
As a cheat, as a liar, as a thief
He dies as a fraud and an embezzler

I stand before the cross and fear
He is not guilty of these things but takes our place.

He dies as a sinner
He dies as one with evil thoughts
As a slave to lust, as a fornicator
As an adulterer, as an abuser of children

I kneel before the cross and weep
He is not guilty of these things but takes our place.

He dies as one full of jealousy
As one who is selfish, unkind and rude
As one who destructively manipulates others.

As one who envies and hates
He dies as a sadist
As one who destroys and murders

I pray before the cross and rejoice
He is not guilty of these things but takes our place
He is not to blame but dies to take the blame for us.

He is dying to forgive us

Stand, stand... 
And watch Jesus die
Alone and with nothing...
God on a stick.
