Lord of the Centuries

Lord of the centuries,
Knit of our pain the knots
That mysteriously arrange themselves.

Guide by unseen fingers
Each little pearl,
To form a cloth alive withYour Golden threads,
Infinitely more than happenstance or tragedy.

Each strand of Time a Mystery,
Bathed in trial and tears,
Yet rich in awe,
Resplendent in beauty,
And the gracious magnitude
Of sacrificial love.

Whole cloth,
Woven into a seamless robe,
You don in magesty,
Humble and meek in triumph o’r our graves
As Life welcomes to the Banquet,
Our souls, now clothed in bodies,
One with Your Own.
