Thrice in the chapters of prevailing dark
The Lord said, "Father"; first, at that crossroad
Where the road taken, and its end, were stark;
"Father, forgive them ...": next the Saviour showed
The weight of grace before He bore sin's load;
And last, in words we barely understand
He placed His spirit in His Father's hand.
Luke 22: 42; 23: 34; 23: 46.
