In His Image

He plunged beneath the surface,
His perfect sight revealed
what human veil concealed.
He spoke commanding
the blind to see, the lame to walk,
the spiritually deaf to hear.
And, I who rejected once his power,
received it in my needy hour.

The life which Jesus gave away,
he took it back, intact,
and proved man's spiritual nature
to be untouched and undiminished
by death, disease and sin,
but in Love's arms-- to have remained
complete, undimmed.
