Gold

Pure divine glory,
Undiluted, unadulterated.
Hammered, beaten, shaped,
Gold, pure, created by God’s word.
An altar crafted
A place of atonement
Mercy, made of unpolluted love,
Given, hidden,
Within human fragility,
Touching hearts, giving
Life, created with God’s Spirit.
Pure holy fire,
Burning, shaping, molding,
Crafted with skill
Beaten within reach
A sacrifice of pure gold,
An offering poured out ruby wine,
In the place of wrath and
Driven by love,
Pure divine love,
Intimate, intertwined, interwoven,
Sinless, created in God’s Son.
Mercy
In the place of crafted sweat,
In the heart of desire,
Under a golden grace covenant,
A dance of joy,
An eternal delight,
Bruised and created, for
Intimate love.
