“There’s going to be a scar,” the doctor says.
We are so grateful. We were so afraid.
We expected the worst, now we have hope.
We put ourselves in the doctor’s hands.
Jesus told Thomas to touch his side,
there where the spear went in;
to touch his hands,
there where they put the nails.
Long life means many scars.
Only the young die unstitched.
Lord! Lord! If you will not
spare us, heal us!
