the cup


the cup holds all things
my hopes, my dreams
is it empty
or full?

the cup holds all things
the stuff of life that overwhelms
filled to the brim
what if it spills?

the cup holds all things
the wrath which will save me
if i drink
will i stand?

the cup holds all things
the wine of the banquet
offered freely
come, drink!

Jody this is great. Would you mind if I used it (properly credited) as the invitation to communion tomorrow please?

Sorry Jody - but whilst you're feeling creative.

I've tagged you - hope it's not a hassle
