From the Sky is Falling

The sky is raining manna from heaven,
blessings received with guile,
a gift attached to a price too high to pay
and even when He said I Am
willing to sweeten the deal with quail,
the Israelites grumbled and collected
not in faith, but did everything with selfish ambition
and vain conceit as they watched not only their food
turn to maggots, but also their hope for salvation.

So God sent his son to pay the wergild
not for one lost son or daughter,
not for one lost nation or ethnicity,
but to be the bread of life that sustains
the hope of eternity a caelo usque ad centrum.
