Joseph of Arimethea loved in secret, draft no. 3

Joseph loved you secretly because he feared Jews

Joseph followed secretly.

Yet, you loved Joseph, too.

Maybe there’s someone who loves Jesus, but daren’t say

Because if he were to say so, he would be soon be dragged away

Another, he is able to accept the daytime load

Of trusting you in public where darts and bullets go

He is also loved by you

and knows you, perhaps, better

But in heaven I think you’ll accept

both their loves together.
