This sonnet is based on: Ephesians 1:3-14.
God: Father, Christ, and Spirit blessed be,
Whose embrace enfolds with the Trinity,
Who with every blessing blesses me.
Father, before I was, you loved me
Not because I was a saint or lovely,
But to make me holy, you chose me.
Jesus, beloved, you have redeemed me
By your blood, abundant grace — lavishly,
Paid my debt, brought me back, uniting me.
Holy Spirit, you make strong, live in me;
You satisfy, seal, are a guarantee,
And fill to the measure all of me.
God: Father, Christ, and Spirit, blessed be
The Three in One, One in Three, dwell in me.
