Rays Of Ever Essence

Ronald-Bunch 1982 (Grand Rapids)



Rays of ever essence
Down to an earthly presence.
Prickly wood where a man once stood,
Was the earth his birth, or heaven his cradle?
A wooden guardian would say:
"Yes, the earth was where he dipped his ladle."
A crucifix above a splintered chest was blessed.
The water is just washing over.
The living water trust.
His body now looked over,
His new body wasn't in the crust,
Jesus no less saved him and us.
A new born now to adorn,
Once held lightly now knightly.
Let the water reflect the way, the truth, and the life.
Jesus rained down in his graveyard strife.
