 Mary, How Did You Feel?–Part 2

 

As his ministry beganfile000161791775

Turning the water into wine

Learning to walk on water

Oh Mary, how did you feel?

 

 

Ministering to the thousands

Feeding hundreds with just two loaves and some fish

The parables that he taught

Oh Mary, how did you feel?

 

 

That wasn’t allZacchaeus and Jesus

As he healed the lame

And raised the dead from the grave

Oh Mary, how did you feel?

 

 

He was hailed as wonderful

His praises were sung

He was paraded into town

Oh Mary, how did you feel?

 

 

Yet, he foretold of the futureJesus comes to Zacchaeus' home Luke 19:2-10

And all that was to come

Did you know?  Did you understand?

Oh Mary, how did you feel?

 

 

He made some people mad

Speaking of a kingdom they did not understand

Destroying the temple and moneychangers

Oh Mary, how did you feel?

 

 

The day he was arrested

Taken from the garden

Tried for crimes he did not commit

Oh Mary, how did you feel?

 

 

Beaten to a pulp

Whipped beyond recognition

The crown piercing his skull

Oh Mary, how did you feel?

 

 

As he dragged his cross through townfile0002134038580

Before being hung on it to die

The blood that seemed to pour down

Oh Mary, how did you feel?

 

 

The guards standing there mocking

The crowd as it jeered

The pain in his eyes

Oh Mary, how did you feel?

 

 

He had so much loveat foot of cross

To put himself through this

Not for himself, but everyone else

Oh Mary, how did you feel?

 

 

You stood there looking on so hopeless

John by your side

Feeling so helpless

Oh Mary, how did you feel?

 

 

As he cried to his father

Begging for a thirst of water

Forgiving the thief by his side

Oh Mary, how did you feel?

 

 

Then it was finished

As the ground began to shake

Darkness covered the sky

Oh Mary, how did you feel?

 

 

The spear in his sideMary at cross

Relief when they didn’t break his legs

The pain that your son was gone

Oh Mary, how did you feel?

 

 

His body taken down

As it was placed in the tomb

No time for a decent burial

Oh Mary, how did you feel?

 

 

As the night fellDSC_7656

The Sabbath was about to begin

How long those three days must have been

Oh Mary, how did you feel?

 

 

The pain and the tears

Knowing that your son was gone

Realizing that this was his destiny

Oh Mary, how did you feel?

 

 

Did you think that it was over?PICT3558

Or did you know that God had another plan?

Did you understand all that was happening?

Oh Mary, how did you feel?

 

 

The heavy steps to the tomb

The weight on your heart

The longing to touch your son

Oh Mary, how did you feel?

 

 

To arrive at the tombangel at tomb

The stone rolled away

Your son no longer there

Oh Mary, how did you feel?

 

 

To see the angel

And hear that he had risen

How your heart must have rejoiced

Oh Mary, how did you feel?

 

 

To finally see him againwomen and angel at tomb

That he was alive

He had risen from the grave just as he’d promised

Oh Mary, how did you feel?

 

 

To know for sure that it was true

The joy of holding him in your arms

How overjoyed you must have been

Oh Mary, how did you feel?

 

 

As he talked with his disciplesrisen Jesus

Explaining all that had happened

Telling of all that was to come

Watching his ascension

How wonderful it must have been878243-bigthumbnail

To be the mother of Jesus

Both the joy and the pain and heartache

From his lowly birth in a stable

To watching him grow and minister

To his violent death and resurrection

Did you realize how blessed you were?

That you were the special one God chose

That he saw how pure your heart was

That two thousand years later, his name was still calledJesus son of God

Doing something for all mankind, preparing all who believed in him for eternity
