Adjusted by Christ’s might in the creation,
Beside the feet of Jesus Peter knelt
Acknowledging the sinfulness he felt.
Adjusted by the Father’s revelation
He found the humble Carpenter who trod
Beside him was the Christ, the Son of God.
Adjusted by severeness of rebuke
He learned that Christ was ready to fulfil,
Cost what it would, the details of God’s will.
Adjusted by the glory of the Father
He heard that no man’s glory might be linked
With Christ since the Beloved is distinct.
Adjusted by the Master’s loving look
Appreciation of his vileness swept
Across his being, and he turned and wept.
Adjusted by the Shepherd’s yen to gather
He came with those whom Jesus folded in
To form a circle Christ could come within.
