More than mortal chrysalis
A shell to shed at trumpet blast
Thy incarnation hast placed emphasis
Upon its worth, and one day at last
My soul that seems to brim in fullness,
From Thy Spirit’s dwelling there,
Shall receive, free from its dullness,
A transformed body with which to share
An eternity upon an earth
Recreated from such scandal–
Physical picture of spiritual birth.
At last this flesh to not mishandle.
And with mine body thou hast deigned pure
I’ll touch Thy flesh love did procure.
