“Once you were not a people,
   but now you are God’s
once you had not received
   but now you have received
         mercy.” 1 Peter 2:10

when we found
only park benches
for our beds,
   you built a home
   for us in your heart;
when death offered
only bitter wine to drink
and moldy bread to eat,
   you laid out a feast
   of grace and life.
