Drawing into Triune (as Jesus prayed)



Oh might we hear from you today
Speak dear Lord, now as we pray
Come alongside these bits of clay
We supplicate, we praise your Heart
Twas for this joy
You set apart
Involve us in Compassion’s Art
All else is loss
We see the Cross
And hear the words Messiah voiced
Father forgive
Again I’ll live
And share the secret we have blessed
For purpose, power, peace and rest.
He saw the path
He did the Math
And we have access to the Throne.
He bled to cleanse each spotted stain
He lives, He serves; will come again.



(Read John’s Gospel chapter 17, verses 20-26.
Jesus’ priestly prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane before His expected arrest and humiliation, by Temple conspirators.)
