Death is swallowed up in victory

Anagram of 1 Corinthians 15:54, NKJV

run! the Physician has made
death burn,
wove saints a garment
tightly—tools
to withstand rot,
unspools limp sin-torn city,
all without
prior wrath,
but establishes
rich hope upon it

    I love this, especially “wove saints a garment / tightly—tools…”
