for this one sinner

God’s message consistent
in the parables,
in Christ’s choice
spending time with one sinner
saving him from the lost
a lost coin, a wayward sheep,
many prodigal children
God spends his time on each of them
for there is more joy in heaven
when one who has been lost is found
one gathered in
for this one sinner joy above
for he will truly live
