Weekend Worship - Once Upon a Time . . .

Once Upon a Time
by Edie Melson

Dust & ashes
Filthy rags
Hateful masters
Ugly hags

Aching heart
Wishes made
Things changed
Rules obeyed

Pretty clothes
Delightful gathering
Striking clock
Hope unraveling

Life abandoned
Party fled
Dream denied
Future dead

Broken heart
Determined prince
Kingdom searched
Message sent

Trail followed
Captive sought
Desolate found
Freedom bought

Lifted up
Life redeemed
Carried away
Fulfilled dream

Fairy tale
Cosmic joke
Cruel lie
No hope

Jesus Christ
Heard my call
Paid the price
Prince of all
