By Grace

Meaningless! Meaningless!

The wretched breakage of

             Bondage

Grieved for long before its time

All of it meaningless!

 /

It is my grace we enjoy

             Our deliverance.

When grace about but left

             Unreceived

It becomes meaningless.

 /

In the wake of expression

An unsteady freedom

             Rises

Unbound by chains of

             Yesterday

The marked time is

             Meaningless.

 /

By faith we see the new dawn

And utter defiance to

             The storm

For what is lost will be

             Gained again

Wisdom in obedience transforms

             The soul again.

 /

The warriors might, the widows song,

             The mothers care

Without grace

Is all meaningless.

 /

I will not be shaken by earth

             Or despair

There is a time to weep,

             And a time to die

And a time to live for all visions

             To come to pass, by Grace.

 

(Original poem: 1997, Kelowna, BC)
