My brothers and I found
Some empty 5ths discarded

Atonement is reconcillation.
The debt has been paid.
We are saved from disaster.

The Grand Canyon was filled with pudding.
Chocolate was it's base.
It came down the Colorado

Vice from advice
to follow the crowd
leads ever downward.
Have I been wowed?

Onward and upward
I can see the stars.
Women are from Venus.
Men are from Mars.

I'll go to the brink
and look over the cliff.
With Grand Canyon vision
my priorities shift.

Why am I standing
so close to the edge?
The drop off is final.
Safely, I pledge.

I have a kind family.
I have a good wife.
I'm never lonely.
This is my life!

Virtue is honor.
Noble is true.
Trust is a blessing.
Can I trust you?

Life is a miracle
For the seed gives birth
Human, plant, or animal
all are good on earth.

Without the seeded miracle
there wouldn't be any growth
Sunshine would fall on emptiness
All sunshine creates toast.

Because of God's miracle
sun and rain create.
A seeded earth first gave birth
so we can celebrate.

Adam and Eve were miracles
That's where we first began.
The union of two lovers
gave birth to girls and men.

Another Godly miracle
was sending us His Son.
A virgin birth created
a God and man as one.

He came to show us miracles
He is now the risen Lord.
He is our Savior, Priest, and King
so righteously adored.

That we can follow Him 
and return to home.
Is miracle enough for me.
I'm glad He did atone.
