contrary to nature

Contrary to nature
and by my nature
I’m a wild olive shoot

I’ve been broken
with no words spoken
I’m separated from the root

Contrary to nature
and by my nature
I’ve been grafted in

A divine appointment
A holy anointment
I’ve been grafted in

Now I’m a partaker
of all good things from my maker
it’s the root that supports me
I'm no longer forsaken
deprived and mistaken
it’s the root that supports me

It’s love and it’s kindness
true joy in his likeness
I’ve been grafted in
It’s irrevocable
unnegotiable
I’ve been grafted in
