BEFORE FAITH




Before faith,
We were convicts -
Protective custody;
On probation; under
Law's lock and key.
Until...

Until Jesus came.
Until we had faith.

Now we have faith,
Disciplining is over -
Through our brother
The Son of God,
We are released.

Take off the orange jumpsuits!
Take off those stripes of black!
Take off your prison denims!
Put on civilian clothes -
Put on Jesus Emanuel!

No more Chosen or Other -
We are all Jesus the Christ.
No more Male or Female -
We are all Jesus the Christ.
No more Straight or Gay -
We are all Jesus the Christ.
No more Saint or Sinner -
We are all Jesus the Christ.

Through our brother,
The Son of God,
We are all heirs;
We all have the keys
To the Kingdom.

(Tiwago from Galatians 3)
