Equations have numerators on top
And denominators at the bottom.
The mathematician is tasked with finding
A common denominator that will help solve the equation.
An equalising factor that will put all the coefficients
On the same level.
Christ Jesus is the common denominator for all men.
He placed all men on a level playing field
When, as God, He came to earth in human form.
The odds had been stacked against us,
We had created imbalances
That we were unable to level out.
From the religious and irreligious
To the rich and poor,
Do-gooders and evil-doers alike
The scales were not sitting quite right.
Til He came
The common denominator,
Splitting not just history but our greatest fears in two
And affording grace to anyone who would take it.
He is the love we truly crave
The peace we earnestly seek
The satisfaction for our souls
The hero we always longed for
The comforter we always needed.
He will set right every wrong
And level the playing fields
Once and for all.
