Rebirth

©Jeanne E Webster

“It’s perfect; that’s the one!”

Shouted the most High Priest.

And the lamb that was chosen

Was handed him for the feast.

+

Bleats and bells mixed with dust

As the throng waited in awe;

Behind the veil, the ransom must

Complete the atonement law.

+

The Priest sprinkled the blood

Upon the holy altar of God.

Forgiveness appeared in bud,

Dispersing the sins abroad.

+

The Son’s blood was shed

Heart and spirit forsaken.

A life taken in my stead…

At last my soul did waken.

+

God’s love song fills the air:

“Unto you a Savior is born;      

A Sacrifice offered so rare.       

Holy blood the altar adorns

Your soul has been reborn.”
