Life

My beginning was first breath from You

Existence, ne’er before been hewn

But love and grace and choice make new

A life that You have given

 

Rebellion was of all my choosing

But choice from You was all redemption

Beaten, lonely, scorned and bleeding

Your life that you have given

 

Accepted, chosen loved and wanted

Washed by blood, my purchase granted

Belonging, living, free, untainted

New life that You have given

 

Free to live in joy unending

Peace and purpose all Your sending

Sing Your praise, all are bending

This life, we have been given

The P Words

Set me free for love’s abandon

No longer bound to false affection

Have I not known the truth of love

Was all my story a lie thereof?

 

Set me free from false perception

Look at all through Love’s perfection

Was the beginning true and good,

But distorted by deception’s food?

 

It may be I will never know

The truth of all that we did sow

Or light may dawn some future day

Revealer of some or all our sway

 

The promise is for future goodness

Amazed at all that Love’s accomplished

Rejoice in peace and treasures growing

Announced, established throughout the trying

 

Persistent, patient, persevere

The triple ‘P’ I must revere

Encompassed in that lonely word

Endure, though seemingly absurd
