Overwhelming Grace

I am overwhelmed by your grace, oh Lord

For your mercy consumes my soul with joy.

You have constantly been attendant to my cries

And you have heard my silent weeping in the night.

Although, errant are my ways from your righteousness

Even yet, thy favour present and sudden embrace me.

Amid all the cares of this great universe under your charge

You in mercy incline thine ear unto my pleas, and in the

Abundance of thy healing power with blessings surround

My being, despite myself and despite my sins.

You with your faithfulness, cease not to part the

Red seas of my life, and with thy angels land me safely

On the promised side, according to your time and will, in awe,

My mortal frames acknowledges thy wondrous supremacy

And that through all life, thou are more than sufficient unto me.

Rejoice oh my soul, for the Lord of all creation, has in

Faithful covenant, manifest yet again, His love for me.

Blessed be the name of my God, the Almighty Jehovah

Ever present, mighty and ever victorious on the battlefield.

All praise, glory and thanksgiving be yours, my King

Forever and through the ageless age of eternity.

Peace Elusive

Is lasting global peace an intangible imagination

Has it escaped from the grace of earnest promise.

Does it fall through outstretched hands as porous sand

And now assume the solitude of illusion’s barren frame.

Will children forever be ensnared by its anguish deep

And widows wear the sackcloth of ritual lamentation

Over the fatal disintegration of treasured family bonds,

While fatigued fathers curse the endurance of combat.

Will we constantly live with the presence and news of wars

Where the presence of tranquility simply disintegrates into

The strife of bombardment and the barrage of conflict, to

Eclipse the sincere hope of reassuring and lasting concord.

Will the chapters of existence, but only hence sadly recite, the

Steady accompaniment of tragedy and death with hostilities,

As the frequency of catastrophic battle adopts the constancy of time

That all then lie conquered under the flag of helpless surrender.

Has humanity failed in its obligation to avert this course

And will limb, life and blood line the paths to no escape

Where there is no refuge from the ghoulish nightmares

That torture the captive and the apparent free likewise.

Slumber not, ye responsibility of humanity, amid the carnage

Allowing battle’s transgression to perpetuate its will, till harmony

In capitulation hath no recourse, when all cataclysmic occurs

Living none to truly attend to the reconciliation of harmony.
