The Bitterness of the Cup by Raymond A. Foss

Knowing the suffering
the bitterness of the cup
God giving him comfort
as he lifted it up

Taking the poison
that we may be healed
the sins remembered
in the bile of the cup

The words of memory
of the lash of evil
the trials revealed
in the story of his life
the story of God’s love
