Robe of Eternity

Filthy rags
Hang from my bones,
In my gnarled fingers
To my neck
I clutch them tight,
And though I choke
I won't let go.
Now stands His cross
Stabbed deep in the earth
That calls my name.
Now pours His blood
Filling the hole
That wants my shame.
Now speaks His voice:
"Give those to me,
Wear mine the same."
And now they hang
Upon the nails of death
Far away from me,
And to my neck
I clutch instead
His robe of eternity.
