Throughout His life and teachings,
Jesus drew a variety of pictures of
the Father’s love.
The most compelling was
His own self-sacrifice.
Set to a familiar tune.
A father runs with streaming tears –
His son, once dead, now lives!
His joyful love gives just a glimpse
Of how our God forgives.
A leper comes back home again,
The lame now leap and dance –
God’s gifts can only start to trace
The deep, divine romance.
His flesh and blood, our bread and wine –
He makes Himself our feast.
In death He serves His life to feed
The meanest and the least.
Discover now by childlike faith
What God delights to show:
A joyful, overflowing love
That every life can know.
