I will praise the name of God with a song; I will magnify him with thanksgiving. This will please the Lord more than an ox or a bull with horns and hoofs. When the humble see it they will be glad; you who seek God, let your hearts revive. (Psalms 69:30-32 ESV)
You were wrought upon a wooden cross,
red, given heart,
for all moments I turn my cheek.
Thanks sits patiently, unrelenting-
I become unaware of this reproachful, welling grief.
