Beckett: Poetry – No. 1927, What Jesus Did II

This poem is based on a chapter in Rev. Jonathan Fisk’s Book, Echo.

As Jesus, God died,
yet it was not the end.
His death laid the foundation
for what He did next:

He rose from the dead,
yet not for Himself,
but for you and me,
the pavement for the next thing:

Jesus, the physical God-man,
ascended to the Father.
How He did this is not vital,
but why He ascended.

He ascended for mediation,
and to daily move the cosmos
to give us the Bread of Heaven:
God’s precious, holy Word.

He left us with the Word
that created heaven and earth
to create faith for salvation, —
to be saved from unbelief.
