About Prince of Peace

Perhaps I wanted to catch it perhaps not

But one morning an eagle dropped a diamond And right then with my faulty brush full of my own hair I wanted to paint

I wanted to paint the wings- Too late - they flew away I wanted to paint a flower Too late - it withered

That night the rain was running after me Each drop of rain showed God's face His face was everywhere On homes and on me

I wrung out the love to make the red I wrung out the stumps to make the brown I wrung out the trust to make the pink I wrung out my own eyes to make the blue I wrung out the seaweed to make the green

I wrung out the nightly pain to make the black

I wrung out my grandmother's hair to make the gray

I wrung out my visions to make the violet I wrung out the truth to make the white

Today I want to paint God's face IT'S NOT TOO LATE !
