Like peas in a pod
our likeness from one;
God's radiant son
The Word.

The Word embodied
by flesh and blood
still has power
still has love.

to give His life.
to take up His life.
to share His life.

In a mighty flood
structures come down
and the walls that divide
the Word can drown.

Life itself
the Word can build
a gathering strong and safe
eternal is the glue that binds
and keeps it in its place.

Like peas in a pod
embodied in one;
God's beloved son
The Word made flesh.
