Never Left Behind Again

His mother wrapped her infant Jesus
     in swaddling cloth and laid Him in a
Garments for the Son of Man,
     left behind by a boy since becoming a

His brothers wrapped their dead Lord
     in burial cloth and laid Him in a virgin
Vestments for the High Priest of God,
     left behind by the Lamb having been
          His own sacrifice.

His Father will wrap the Word of God
     in a robe dipped in blood and send Him
          on a cloud...
Gowns for God's Judge of Righteousness,
     to be left behind by a judge becoming
          the King of kings.

Jesus will wrap Himself as a bridegroom
     in a robe of white linen and welcome
          home His fair bride...
Suits befitting a marriage to last forever,
     not to be removed or left behind again,
          an eternal Heaven on Earth.
