A blanket pieced together, by a single
Golden thread, weaving in and out and in
Through life's darkened hues of blacks and
Blues, as abstract patterns of passion's red

And avarice's green, splash across patches
Of some landscaped scene, with a single ray
Of light just like the single golden strand,
Shines bright against the backdrop of man's

Sin, from foundation of the world God's
Overarching plan...to save us from futility
Of man, the Son shines in the darkness, but
Still they wouldn't see, refused him as God...

Scorned him mockingly, while hanging there
He prayed for them in agonizing pain, so that
Everyone could come and his crimson blood
Proclaim, victory over death, man's fallen

Destiny, for God so loved the world...once
For all he died, now once for all he lives in
Heaven's golden realm, awaits the Father's
Call to bring home his betrothed, to answer

Freedom's flight, the Church caught up with
Him for the marriage supper of the Lamb,
The bride in splendid white, there they'll be
For all eternity, with Father, Son, Holy Spirit...

The Blessed Trinity!

John 3:16, 17 -- For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
1 John 1:7 -- But if we are in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.
Revelation 19:9 -- Then he said to me, "Write: 'Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!'" And he said to me, "These are the true sayings of God."
