Good Friday Evening

~Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830-1894)

“Bring forth the Spear.”

No Cherub’s heart or hand for us might ache,
    No Seraph’s heart of fire had half sufficed:
Thine own were pierced and broken for our sake,
            O Jesus Christ.

Therefore we love Thee with our faint good-will,
    We crave to love Thee not as heretofore,
To love Thee much, to love Thee more, and still
            More and yet more.
