What Is A Ruby?

Written and Submitted by: Arianna Lindgren, Age 13

What is a ruby?
A ruby is a stone.
It stands above the others,
Glimmering red all alone.

While the diamonds and the crystals,
May easily be flawed,
The tiny blood red ruby,
Reminds me most of God.

This awful sinful world,
Is what Christ came to save.
And this tiny little gemstone
Is what to us He gave.

Glimmering like the blood,
Dripping from the cross,
This tiny blood red ruby
Falls gently to the moss.

For us sinners Christ has died,
His love is open wide,
And every time I think of Christ,
A tiny blood red ruby will always come to mind.
