a flower speaks

While assigned to write a poem on our mission trip, this is what transpired.

A tulip just a flower
Yet stands for so much more
A tulip just a symbol
Yet it speaks of Christ our Lord
It first tells of depravity
Living deep within
And then of the election
That God has chosen for some to win
The atonement that is limited
Though some may disagree
It must be efficacious, remember
To truly set men free
Irresistible this grace that draws
I cannot tell Him “no”
Salvation does not hinge on man
But on the God who chose
What did I do to gain this state?
Nothing on my own
So since no work can merit it
Perseverance is of God alone!
