He is the true Light, who enlightens me,
Exposing the ubiquity of sin,
But bringing saving grace to set me free
From sin's demands without and wiles within.
The Greeks concocted par-boiled platitudes;
The Sadducees served spreads the flesh would crave;
The Pharisees hid leaven in tart foods:
Christ, the true Bread, is what the Father gave.
Secured by mercy and supplied by grace,
Attached to Christ through love that is divine,
It is my privilege to have my place
Abiding as a branch in the true Vine,
While in His realm of peace, or ours of strife,
Knowing the true God and eternal life.
