What’s so good about Friday?
What’s so good about life?
What’s so good about lying, hatred, violence and strife?
What’s so good about suffering?
What’s so good about greed?
Never learning our lessons
Never realising our needs
What’s so good about trying?
What’s so good about loss?
What’s so good about Jesus?
Beaten and nailed to a Cross?
Well he’s the reason I’m still here
Trying my best to survive
He’s the reason my family
Every day flourish and thrive
That’s what’s good about Friday
That’s why he took the pain
That’s why he endured nails and a sword
Piercing his skin like a flame
So next time you moan on a Friday
Or mutter or mumble or mope
Think back to that darkest of all days
And thank Him for giving us hope.
