Holy Water – v2

The divine was revealed
made clean, prepared, anointed
not with a crown;
but with water
not in the Temple
but in the Jordan,
in the wilderness.

Submitting to an act of trust,
washing away sin
in supplication and fulfillment
to begin His own journey
His mission, His fate
our Savior,
our Lord.
