We are the Dogs – v2

We are the dogs, the unclean,
the animals, the outsiders
under the table
Not the children, the chosen ones
for whom He came.
We are the dogs,
unworthy of a seat at the table
crumbs for us, under the table
scraps to eat, left over
But oh there is enough
even in the crumbs
A bountiful harvest
of living grace in the crumbs
endless sustenance
manna from heaven
enough for our souls
even in the crumbs
