Water Into Wine

More than watering the vine
     to bring forth the grape,
Or changing common water
     into the best of all wine,
Jesus' first miracle, at Cana
     was a glimpse, a preview
What He really came to do,
     not just to save a wedding,
But to prepare His one bride
     for a wedding of their own,
Trading water for cleansing
     for the blood of the Lamb.
Water splashes on our hands
     to wash away the dirt,
But God pours mercy on us
     to wash away our sin.
