Signs at the time of Christ’s crucifixion

The soldiers fell: they sensed Christ’s power:
they should have bowed in awe,
for willingly Christ faced this hour,
the mocking malice bore.

The sun was darkened, – awesome sign
to all Jerusalem
to think about this deed divine –
God’s Word to sinful men.

The veil was torn: a sign to priests
of change, for now fulfilled
were ceremonies, types and feasts,
as Christ the Lamb, was killed.
