Common

Common law
Common ground
Common grace
All made in His image
No matter how
Marred and scarred
Shamed and blamed
Created to be one before the fall
The guilt
The sin
The pain
The loss
Brokenness and disdain
In His image we are made
His value displayed
Every man
Born on common ground
Under common law
Sharing this common fall
Created for dignity to the core
Only one Saviour born on this common ground
Died and rose that we may be found
No longer slaves in poverty
But royal princes and princesses
With the power of His love and true liberty
I stand before the cross on common ground
His image in me once broken
Now restored and redeemed
Once lost now found.
