Jesus, remember me

                             

Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.

When you gather your Beloved into your Realm, the disgraced and ashamed, the twisted and helpless,          remember me.

When you pronounce your law, “Blessed are the poor, for the Empire is theirs,”          remember me.

When you raise up the brokenhearted, forgive the guilty, heal the broken and redeem those who struggle and fail,          remember me.

When you spread your mercy over the land, and your grace conquers all evil, your love reigns supreme and violence, even mine, is conquered,          remember me.

When you take your throne of suffering, and accept your blood-jeweled crown, when you marshal your troops armed with self-emptying love,          remember me.

When I must choose between love and comfort,          remember me.

Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.
