Only His Wounds

We think, we're so sure

if we lick our wounds and pick ourselves up and get moving...

but no, no

it's only by His wounds that we are healed. 

My wounds have me clinging to isolation in darkness,

but His wounds pull me into the light.

My wounds fester 

but from His wounds heal deeply, truly, finally

Vinegar is all I have to wash these cuts bruises

but your love soothes like salve and finest wine
