    City of Sorrows~ Thoughts for Holy Saturday

    The Stations of the Cross, St Elizabeth's Church, Eureka Springs, Arkansas


    By the waters of Babylon
    Still and deep
    The sun rose at midnight
    I was not asleep
    I saw a man with a javelin
    A carriage of steel
    His eyes burned like sapphires
    Wheels turning in wheels

    I saw aluminum angels
    Arrayed like a choir
    Hailstones falling
    Rivers of fire
    By the waters of Babylon
    I sank down in shame
    Covered in ashes
    I called out your name

    Oh Jerusalem
    City of thrones
    The blood of your people
    Still darkens the stones
    City of sorrows
    Spread on a hill
    Bride of the prophets
    They dream of you still

    Kings in their armor
    Swords in the sky
    Storefronts of martyrs
    Lined up to die
    While in the streets of Jerusalem
    Children in pain
    Covered in ashes
    I called out your name

    Oh Jerusalem
    City of thrones
    The blood of your people
    Still darkens the stones
    City of sorrows
    Spread on a hill
    Bride of the prophets
    They dream of you still

    Oh Jerusalem
    City of thrones
    The blood of your people
    Still darkens the stones
    City of sorrows
    Spread on a hill
    Bride of the prophets
    They dream of you still

    Fernando Ortega
    From the album "Storm" 2002

    Lamentations 3

    The Prophet's Anguish and Hope

    I am the man who has seen affliction
    by the rod of His wrath.
    He has led me and made me walk
    In darkness and not in light.
    Surely He has turned His hand against me
    Time and time again throughout the day.

    He has aged my flesh and my skin,
    And broken my bones.
    He has besieged me
    And surrounded me with bitterness and woe.
    He has set me in dark places
    Like the dead of long ago.

    He has hedged me in so that I cannot get out;
    He has made my chain heavy.
    Even when I cry and shout,
    He shuts out my prayer.
    He has blocked my ways with hewn stone;
    He has made my paths crooked.

    He has been to me a bear lying in wait,
    Like a lion in ambush.
    He has turned aside my ways and torn me in pieces;
    He has made me desolate.
    He has bent His bow
    And set me up as a target for the arrow.

    He has caused the arrows of His quiver
    To pierce my *loins.
    I have become the ridicule of all my people--
    Their taunting song all the day.
    He has filled me with bitterness,
    He has made me drink wormwood.

    He has also broken my teeth with gravel,
    And covered me with ashes.
    You have moved my soul far from peace;
    I have forgotten prosperity.
    And I said, "My strength and my hope
    Have perished from the Lord."

    Remember my affliction and roaming,
    The wormwood and the gall.
    My soul still remembers
    And sinks within me.
    This I recall to my mind,
    Therefore I have hope.

    Through the Lord's mercies we are not consumed,
    Because His compassions fail not.
    They are new every morning;
    Great is Your faithfulness.
    "The Lord is my portion," says my soul,
    "Therefore I hope in Him!"

    The Lord is good to those who wait for Him,
    To the soul who seeks Him.
    It is good that one should hope and wait quietly
    For the salvation of the Lord.
    It is good for a man to bear
    The yoke in his youth.

    Let him sit alone and keep silent,
    Because God has laid it on him;
    Let him put his mouth in the dust--
    There may yet be hope.
    Let him give his cheek to the one who strikes him,
    And be full of reproach.

    For the Lord will not cast off forever.
    Though He causes grief,
    Yet He will show compassion
    According to the multitude of His mercies.
    For He does not afflict willingly,
    Nor grieve the children of men.

    To crush under one's feet
    All the prisoners of the earth,
    To turn aside the justice due a man
    Before the face of the Most High,
    Or subvert a man in his cause--
    The Lord does not approve.

    Who is he who speaks and it comes to pass,
    When the Lord has not commanded it?
    Is it not from the mouth of the Most High
    That woe and well-being proceed?
    Why should a living man complain,
    A man for the punishment of his sins?

    Let us search out and examine our ways,
    And turn back to the Lord;
    Let us lift our hearts and hands
    To God in heaven.
    We have transgressed and rebelled;
    You have not pardoned.

    You have covered Yourself with anger
    And pursued us;
    You have slain and not pitied.
    You have covered Yourself with a cloud,
    That prayer should not pass through.
    You have made us an offscouring and refuse
    In the midst of the peoples.

    All our enemies
    Have opened their mouths against us.
    Fear and a snare have come upon us,
    Desolation and destruction.
    My eyes overflow with rivers of water
    For the destruction of the daughter of my people.

    My eyes flow and do not cease,
    Without interruption,
    Till the Lord from heaven
    Looks down and sees.
    My eyes bring suffering to my soul
    Because of all the daughters of my city.

    My enemies without cause
    Hunted me down like a bird.
    They *silenced my life in the pit
    And threw stones at me.
    The waters flowed over my head;
    I said, "I am cut off!"

    I called on Your name, O Lord,
    From the lowest pit.
    You have heard my voice:
    "Do not hide Your ear
    From my sighing, from my cry for help."
    You drew near on the day I called on You,
    And said, "Do not fear!"

    O Lord, You have pleaded the case for my soul;
    You have redeemed my life.
    O Lord, You have seen how I am wronged;
    Judge my case.
    You have seen all their vengeance,
    All their schemes against me.

    You have heard their reproach, O Lord,
    All their schemes against me,
    The lips of my enemies
    And their whispering against me all the day.
    Look at their sitting down and their rising up;
    I am their taunting song.

    Repay them, O Lord,
    According to the work of their hands.
    Give them *a veiled heart;
    Your curse be upon them!
    In Your anger,
    Pursue and destroy them
    From under the heavens of the Lord.
