Two Poems for My Savior

Easter Morning 2020

I’m resting in your love today…
your goodness, grace
and hope conveyed
through mercy
at the cross displayed-
I’m resting in your love today.

A Letter to My Savior

I’m not sure what to say, Lord-
Thank you seems hardly enough,
but let my heart reflect your grace
and all-inclusive love

Thank you, Lord for making me
a citizen of your community.
Your kingdom here on earth today,
for life eternal, your truth, your way.

Forgive my failings and continual sin,
please help me to begin again,
with hope restored and strengthened faith,
let me not wander from your grace.

Empower me to forgive
as you’ve forgiven me
and let me love as you have loved
ever faithfully.

From the beginning,
a mystery, history in time,
conflicted in our unity,
the story of all mankind is
humanity’s repeated failure
to reflect the divine.

Help us Lord, make us plainly see
the vision of love within the
expanse of your gracious plea
as you rise on the horizon,
calling each to eternity.

Thank you that we though we are blind
you make us to see,
Thank you that we who were once blind,
are now able to see.
