Cana Commencement

The time was coming
And he knew it then begins
This work to save the world
And overcome its sin
Called away from the ruckus
His mother urged him now to start
The wine is gone
You can help
And do your part
So he spoke to the servants
As his new friends watched in awe
Fill the jugs
Draw it out
And party on
There in Cana all was well
And the guests could never tell
The wine they drank
No local store could ever sell
Yet it wasn’t the beginning
Of an alchemistic show
Not the start
Of a winery’s debut
It was the first
Of all the last
Tied the future
To the past
An act for friends
Who then know the hidden truth
This strange display of the Savior
This seeming inane trick to see
Was done to show his friends
That he was really He
