Uniting With The Head

Where the Head goes so the body does
Where the Head is the Word and the Lord
So His people made up of flesh and blood
Are people whose veins throb with His Word
The love of such is held by a strong chord
A seven strand one that defies peril and sword
They follow the Master not for mere bread
And so will not depart for hunger’s dread
Or for miracles or wonders that spin the head
Like Peter they know He has the Word of Life
His holy precepts then are an end to all strife
The Bride is bound to Christ by His Word
Which has become hers as she is His flesh
The Head has ascended and so the body will
Unity of Word and Bride is the Father’s will

Eagles to a feast of spiritual matter
True oneness is found in holiness
Tis the only unity God can really bless
One God, one Church united in one Body
He the Word, She the flesh made worthy
Two cannot walk except they are agreed
So when you unite yourself with a creed
For convenience or greed for fleeting need
It surprises not the all-knowing God
Whose magnet only attracts godly seed
Previously blessed by predestination’s nod

All work soon stopped on the great tower
No more brick and mortar for want of what to utter
Nimrod’s pet project was destroyed in a hour

Nimrod’s idea was to unite all of humanity
In the great quest to ascend to heaven
By sweating sinews and ambition-fueled unity
They would make a name for all eternity
