O the setbacks
of God's servants
Each saint had
Their dire circumstance
Daniel's den and
Job's grave losses
Jesus' tomb
David's caves
Paul's thorn
Peter's guilt
Moses' stage fright
Esther's minority
So you and me
Have each received
Tailor-made suffering

Welcome to the team
Of underdogs
Of less-likely ones
All Christ-bound ones
All lovely ones
Weak, chosen ones
To-shame-the-proud ones
Ultimately to
slay Giants
among us
Jesus first
All of us, follow
Worthy ones
All after the Son
