First at Last

You’ve made me last

So that I would be first

You’ve given fresh water 

To those who thirst 

And hunger after righteousness 

For they are truly filled

With your Holy Spirit

The One who reveals the Will

Of the Father

His purpose in the earth

Equipped to complete assignments 

Given to them at birth

Pains from creatures’ travailing 

Waiting for sons to manifest 

Bringing deliverance, salvation 

Hope, redemption and rest 

From labor to reward

What we’ve all been waiting for

The prize of the high calling,

What we’ve all been working towards

Has met us at the back

The very back of the line

For he was always waiting there 

For he had First in mind
