Unnoticed, in silent existence.
We pass it without a glance.
An amazing organism team; fungus and algae.
Too lowly to consider.
Some fix nitrogen fertilizing soil.
All live in harsh habitat; surviving drought, cold, heat.
Miniature chemical factories…producing 500 bio-chemicals;
controlling light, repelling herbivores, driving off attacking microbes, for survival.
Lichen persists on the earth.
Jesus, Creator of extraordinary lichen.
We pass him by without a glance.
He’s inexplicable-three in One.
Suffered a lowly death on a cross.
Only solution to our sins.
Persist in Him; survive a harsh sin filled world.
Receive eternal life…free.
