Jesus saith unto them,
Did ye never read in the scriptures,
The stone which the builders rejected,
the same is become the head of the corner:
this is the Lord’s doing,
and it is marvellous in our eyes?
Matthew 21:42 (quote from Psalm 118:22-23)
Eastern Tiger Swallowtail (the official state insect of the Commonwealth of Virginia)
Behold the Cross, where, as He buys
With His own blood a bride—His prize—
The Christ unto His Father cries,
And, having spent Himself, He dies:
Come see the tomb wherein He lies:
Then watch a glorious Son rise.
Thus by these marvels in our eyes
We see the Savior realize
That which the Spirit prophesies:
Divine salvation come crosswise.
Now wonder at this great surprise:
By this salvation God supplies,
With faith in Christ as kinship ties—
We, too, can be like butterflies!
