1 Twelve for the twelve apostles,
eleven for eleven with names in heaven and
ten for the ten commandments;
nine for the nine ungrateful men and
eight who were saved from drowning;
seven for the seven stars in God's hand and
six for the jars of water;
five for the loaves that Jesus shared and
four for the gospel writers;
three, three, for Easter Day;
two, two, the great commands
love your God, your neighbour too:
God is one, and God alone has made you and can save you.
