In Christ, when strangers are a one another,
feet get washed, refreshed, and bodies fed
with festive, hearty food. The poor are clothed.
Those once alone become all sisters, brothers,
saints–together we taste living bread.
Though once ashamed, now praise becomes our robe
of righteousness. A word of hope is shared
among the brotherhood. A word of love
is given as a sacred trust. The bond
of unity now proves that we are cared
for by the King. Around, the world may shove.
But those immersed within the sacred pond
will find a gentle, just and perfect peace,
for from our sins we’ve been set free: released.
