It was one of those hit-the-shoulder-for-a-quick-photo days...
a heart-full-o'-wonder and glory-hallelujah praise.
We are more than mouths gaping while shaping stuttered praise
We are ageless souls clad in the flesh of numbered days
We are more than hold-let-go, yes-no and maybe-so
We are Why Christ came to die and by His grace we go
We are more than skin-bone plunder, want-wish-wonder-wait
We are God’s beloved children; live-love-celebrate
