Relentlessly

Relentlessly
They broke His flesh
Like brutal savages
Ravenous for blood

They scourged His body
With twisted pleasure
And mocked Him
With diabolical jeers
As they whipped His back
To shreds

Driven by depravity
They pierced nails
Into His hands
And feet
And raised Him up
For all the world
To see

And Jesus forgave all
All because He loves
Relentlessly
