What Went Through The Mind?

          What went though the mind
          Of Jesus on the cross?
          Was it filled with second guessing
          Sensing incredible loss?

          No, I think ‘twas a thing much different
          That touched the edges of His mind
          For prior to Adam’s first defiance
          Jesus planned to save mankind

          So, what went through His mind
          As He labored just to breathe?
          Perhaps He considered His creation
          Maybe He thought of you and me

          Surely He was distraught
          When His Father turned His back
          He carried your every sin
          In a sacrifice without lack

          Perhaps He remembered His childhood
          Or the men He came to teach
          Those who’d witnessed a personal miracle
          The multitudes that heard Him preach

          Maybe, just maybe, He thought
          Of all the wrong I’d do
          And though crushed with grief
          Spoke to all ‘fore He was through

          "Father, forgive them,
          They know not what they do."
          He then became our advocate
          In three days - rose anew

          We may never know what
          Jesus thought while dying on a tree
          The point of suffering is made clear
          When a lost child bows the knee

          He endured sheer agony
          On behalf of all mankind
          He died once - and for all
          Then rose again divine

          What went though the mind
          Of Jesus on the cross?
          We are left to wonder
          About the One who paid the cost
