When God Saw Black
When God saw black,
He had to turn away…
From the sin and shame and pain, He’d put upon His Son.
He wept aloud in Heaven, as angels watched.
He was horrified at what He’d done.
The one He loved the most, He allowed to carry all that terror.
He questioned Himself, for there is none higher. Could God make an error?
My beloved Son is is suffering, consumed, as an offering upon a fire.
It is finished!!! Jesus said!!!
And God turned back, remorseful, mournful…
In three days, He was no longer scornful…Forceful!!!
He raised Jesus, by His Spirit, from the dead!!!
Heaven had opened again for mankind to enter.
Jesus was accepting every repent-er.
When God saw black, He had to look away.
But beloved Jesus ascended, to His Father’s embrace.
Sitting on His throne, speaking, face to face.
We know that love in part, when we give Jesus our heart.
We’ll know it fully we see Him coming in the cloud.
Shouting joyfully out loud, all because of His amazing grace.
