Just a Moment

Sharon Chang—Brisbane, Australia

It was just a moment
That she closed her eyes
In prayer
Head bowed
Hand clasped
Into the water
Up out of the water
In just a moment
Her sins were washed away.

It was just a moment
After three years
The culmination
Of exploration
And determination
To find
The Source of All Creation
The Giver of Salvation.

A finite moment
For infinite life
It was for this that
Jesus came
To teach, to preach
To heal, to save
Though the culmination
For our salvation—
His infinite moments of agony
Eloi eloi lama sabacthani
My God why hast Thou forsaken Me?
It was because of us that
Jesus bled
From head, from hands
From back, from side, from feet
He minded not a bit
He begrudged us not a single moment
Because excruciating
Finite pain
Was borne with exquisite
Infinite love.

In just a moment
She stepped ashore
A child of God
At her cleansing
A reminder to all of us who witnessed
The Unending Unchanging Unrestrained
Infinite love of God.
