F is for Friday




Before the darkness, cold and dead
Was banished by the burning red
And yellow light
God knew
And called it good

Before the waters, deep and dark
Were shaped into that mighty arch,
The firmament
He saw
And called it good

Before He set the stars in place
The galaxies of swirling space
And frozen time
He chose
And called it good

Before He, with His awesome hand
From dust created the first man
And gave him life
He planned
And called it good

He knew the day that He would die
Would suffer and be raised on high
Outstretched against the burning red
And yellow sky
That He had made

He knew for He had planned the day
This Friday
That we call good.


What does Good Friday mean to you? Is there anything special you're planning?
