Lord Heal the Legacy of Auschwitz

Lord, Heal the Legacy of Auschwitz
If Your Blood had been over
those iron gates
would such evil have occured?
I see the striped pajamas of infamy
that collects spider webs
why have we tried to push
it from our consciousness?

Lord, Heal the Legacy of Auschwitz
my diverse introspections
muddies the truth
when all I want is justice
for them,
for Anne Frank,
I cling to their suffering
still,
the razors of that ignoble
fence,
forces the taste
of genocide
into our mouths

Lord, Heal the Legacy of Auschwitz,
When Your Israel,
was hunted down by
demon packs,
I am reminded
of the squeeling pigs
running over the cliff,
legion came back
to finish the job

Lord, Heal the Legacy of Auschwitz,
when satan distorts it still
denying that it happened
and fools believe him
the descendants of Abraham
and Isaac and Jacob,
the dead bones of millions
I wonder if Ezekiel saw
this vision of hell

Lord, Heal the Legacy of Auschwitz
reveal the secrets we’ve discarded
of individuals, not mass
graves, of smiles, and laughs
words they spoke,
prayers they wept
I wonder if they were
answered?
when satan created
crematoriums
to incinerate
Judah,
and remnants
of Israel,
the revenge
he planned
when they escaped
from Egypt

Lord, Heal the Legacy of Auschwitz,
it’s survivors that slipped
away from life,
I wonder how long they
saw the ghost trains?
the nightmares
they surrendered to
their fingers and hands
of vibrancy and beauty
reduced to breathing
through bars
their last freedom
dignity ripped open
as a scab on humanity

Lord, Heal the Legacy of Auschwitz,
where animals wore uniforms
and the stinch of their rule
made the air putrid,
polluting basic decency
Why didn’t more people
stand up for the Jews?
Where was the Church?
The Christians?
Were there more
goats than lambs?

Lord, Heal the Legacy of Auschwitz,
AUSCHWITZ that seems to have no voice
AUSCHWITZ that seems to have received no justice
AUSCHWITZ that appears to have no face
but ours,
can the lie be so deep?
when the devil says You Forsook Judah
But, no, there was a greater purpose
a heart of wealth in all of this
When Paul wrote that Israel
would return
the Root of David
Vengeance belongs to God
The Lion of Judah
We cannot heal the destruction
the breach of history
when the enemy sought
to rip the fabric of it
We have a Saviour
Whose Name is Jesus
He will claim the Victory
for Israel
He will fly His Banner
of Love over them

“It is He that will heal the legacy of Auschwitz.”

Artist's Description

“And He has exalted the horn of His people,
The praise of all His saints-
Of the children of Israel,
A people near to Him.

Praise the Lord!
(Psalm 148:14)

I have never forgotten those who were murdered in the Holocaust. I won’t say died because they wouldn’t have died if they were not brutally tortured, shot, incinerated, starved, and butchered. Only the Lord can Heal such an evil legacy. Only His Love will heal such an ugly legacy given to all humanity.
