There is a mystery I know

About our Lord who loves us so

He’s kind and true and loving too

A model of Christian virtue.

He oversees our daily lives

And for our freedom ever strives

Oh what I’d give to see His face

Gladly accepting His embrace.

But better still I want to be

A part of His vast company

And sit there waiting at His feet

Now this would make my life complete !

I hear the sound of distant drums

Too soon the problem this way comes

Let’s gird our loins and standup tall

We’ll brace our backs against the wall.

Too late we learn there’s no redress

It’s not that easy, I confess

Tis better far to peaceful be

And smoke the pipe to victory !

I cannot halt to hear the sound

Of all God’s creatures shuffling round

The night’s so full of shadows stark

I feel the fear here in the dark

Each movement that I note betrays

The consequence of former days

I wait upon the Lord of Night

To lead me to the dawn’s daylight !

The silence falls upon my ear

It seems to be all I can hear

Each sound reverberates with fear

The day of grace is inching near !

Oh Lamb of God, I come to Thee

The bastion of our liberty

I beg of You to set me free.

Untie my wings and let me fly

Into the reaches of the sky

Ere pride and love have passed me by !

There stands an elm outside my door too scarred and old

A magnificent stanchion mighty to behold

This aged tree, true remnant of a long ago

Attests to all, the verity of what we know

God’s works are beauteous and marvelous to see

Enjoy it all for God alone can make a tree !

 

EMPTY GRAVE ( 2018 ) 2018/02/21

I hear a tune it croons to me

A half forgotten memory

The vestige of what used to be

When you and I were young and free.

The time’s  long gone, it passed us by

Too late to query, wonder why

The heart remembers so do I

Tis the moment to bid goodbye.

The blessed Lord who guides our way

And taught us each from day to day

His wisdom reaches out to save

This lonely soul from empty grave !
