I’m insignificant

 

I know I’m insignificant
But I’m still part of you,

From long before you formed me 
In the womb;

In birth, in life, in death, Lord, 
Then far beyond the tomb –

I’m part of you forever,
And amen!

Prayer, suffering, life, courage, help, bear, illness, mental, physical,

Live forever!

At your birth
The angels sing;

In the heavens
Praises ring.

In the temple
Seeking truth –

Far beyond
Your tender youth.

At the river,
Truth descends;

On the mountain,
Light transcends. 

At the Supper,
Destiny;

In the garden, 
Agony.

Then, at last,
Comes your arrest –

So much hatred
Manifest.

Yet, when questioned, 
You stay mute –

All are free 
To persecute.

On the cross,
Your darkest hour;

Pain and sorrow
Overpower.

In the tomb,
Death cannot win –

You live forever,
Heavenly King!
