Divine Ministry

Jesus praying
Jesus breaking bread
Jesus listening
Here in this last room of your earthly life
You are surrounded by Jesus.

Were you once - in another life -
One of the women who gave of their substance?
Maybe you were a woman of Gaul,
A slave, empty until he came.
You followed him
Ministering to him.

Now he's come
To minister to you out of his substance
Waiting patiently
To walk you across.
