In Christ Alone #easter #poetry

Who faithful carries burdens

who in love bore the cross

only one God’s Son

willingly paid the price

sin a heavy anchor

none can loose its chains

but by the eternal victor

 you are free from pain

why walk bent and broken

you can be set free

what a loving forfeit

Christ’s death on Calvary

*

Sins willingly bore

Risen no grave could hold

Jesus paid sin’s price

 

 

Words of Grace #Easter #poetry

Easter Lily

He whispered words of grace

balm against my anguished soul

massaging the world’s pointed pain

He touched with words of grace

sweet myrrh filled emptiness

healing my life-long scars

He planed with words of grace

sanding away cancerous decay

the shaving sno part of me

He walked away from grace

nails driven into eternity

sin abolished in sacrifice

 HE lives words of grace

joyous love fills the soul

barren no more

*****

Wishing each of you a Happy Easter.

May your burdens be lifted

by

Grace

The Face of Passion #poetry #photography

The Road Ahead

Passion led

 man’s life to spill

His love

on Calvary’s hill

Passion fueled

an angry mob

insults and rocks

cruelly lobbed

Passion moved

the earth to shake

 sky grew dark

bonds would break

Passion cried

 in a tomb he lay

night filled hearts

but we await the day

This poem is in response to the prompt at Verse First/Poet’s United. The prompt is “Passion.” I don’t often write directly on my blog of my faith, but it is what holds me up on good days and on the very worst.
