Love's Wardrobe

When giving direction...

You dressed in garments clean and bright
The Sinless Son, the Heavenly Light
"Follow me!" You lead the way
 Teaching truth and why to pray

When offering comfort...

Your sandals strode across the waves
The wind and seas obeyed as slaves
"Peace, be still!" was Your command
 Faith accepts what God hath planned

When starting a friendship...

You girded your robe to kneel on the floor
Washing my feet--a Servant's sad chore
 This gentle touch, this loving care
All of life's burdens with You can be shared

When providing healing...

You wore a crown of thorns and died
A spear thrust through to wound Your side
What Perfect Love--So pure and sweet
Truly found in You--complete!


Love always dresses in work clothes
And knows not that it is a sacrifice
 For the joy that is set before suffices

Heb. 12:2
Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
