Water into Wine

Expect great things.
     Jesus is God of all power
     To move mountains,
     Water into wine,
     Water gushing from flinty rock
     Struck by the Spirit,
     Lame man leaping,
     The blind one sees people, colours,
     And the leper is washed clean,
     Like a baby – new.

So what is death to Him?
     Or weary, painful illness?
     Or deafness, speech impediment,
     Depression, the grey tomb of sorrow?
     Every tear shall be wiped away
     As these mountains are swept into the sea
     By the embracing waves
     Of His glorious power and love.

Expect great things.
     Now. 
     Today.
     This very hour.
Jesus is God of all authority and power
     Now.  Today.  Every day.

     Expect great things.
