Easter Garment

Easter Garment

Gather He does unto Himself threads of human life

The sorrows, the sores, the aches, the wars

But more than just the strife

While He gathers those who hunger, He gathers grains of wheat

While He gathers those who thirst, He gathers waters sweet

While He gathers those alone, He gathers welcome places

While He gathers those exposed, He gathers sheltered places
Unto Himself He gathers counsel for the inebriated

Unto Himself He gathers keys for the incarcerated

Unto Himself He gathers courage for the latent

Unto Himself He gathers panaceas for the patient

Unto Himself He gathers sages for the fool
Reconcile all things He does with His finger, frame, and spool

Into a Holy garment revealed on Easter day.

All things reconcile with His love, his life, his way.

Reconcile all things with His love, his life, his way.

All things are reconciled with His love, His life, His way.
