You saw the sorry state of man
-The punishment he faced
In pity You devised a plan
-Sin's debt Your blood erased.

Upon my face I seek You, Lord
-Your servant in disgrace
Your word 'tis true a mighty sword
-Heart pierced I seek Your grace.

So quick to judge, forgiveness slow
-This heart please cleanse, I pray
Your gentle love help me to show
-To all along my way.

Too much my mind dwells on myself
-For fading things I lust
Too long Your Book sits on my shelf
-Collecting webs of dust.

Refreshing Spring please satiate
-This parched and barren land
Restore again that blissful state
-Bestowed by Your own hand.

O, Sovereign God, Exalted King
-Before Your throne I bow
Forevermore my soul shall sing
-The mercies You endow.

Denise, while I can't share your beliefs, I can say that this poem is very stunning, and moving to even a non-believer.

Wonderful job, Denise! I was afraid when I saw the title that it was going to be a zit poem, ala Poet DeVine. Nice to see it wasn't.

This is simply professional! Like Balladeer, I thought it was gonna be something that should have been posted in the Adult Forum or something...and, I truly wasn't disappointed! Very very well written and the message was fantastic.....

THIS POEM IS SO BEAUTIFUL, I AM ALSO GUILTY OF FALLING IN AND OUT OF FAITH AT TIMES. YET WHEN SOMETHING GOES WRONG HE IS STILL THERE TO LISTEN. WONDERFULLY WRITTEN!!!!

I BELIEVE WE ALL SHOULD FIND THE TIME,
TO PRAISE OUR MIGHTY GOD DIVINE.
SO MANY TAKE FOR GRANTED HIS LOVE,
THAT SHINES SO PURE FROM UP ABOVE.
