Piper’s First Trip to the E.R.

When they stole your blood
For medical purposes
It was red

The same color blood
That any doctor’s seen
But it was yours

“The life is in the blood,”
The healing Scriptures say
And this is true

But first to spill this blood
Is required, death for life
And it was so

So yours is not the first children’s blood
That was taken for health, my daughter
It was the firstborn Son’s.
