Hope In Full Glory





Coral caress fans the cold crest
Of midnight’s star-frothed slumber
Daylight that faded in the west
Is rising over yonder

Blue-silver sweep of winter-deep
Kisses blushing horizon
The remnant-blue tenders its hue
Into the pastel sky-line

Plateau of unknown beckons us
To seek life’s moment-myst’ry
Before dusk’s periwinkle cusp
Absorbs this day to hist’ry

Lift up your cup and fill it up
God’s mercy over-flowing
Renders love’s grace to human-race
In a new dawn’s bestowing

 Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
    for his compassions never fail.They are new every morning;
    Great is your faithfulness. 
 Lam. 3:22-23

Hallelujah!

It is nothing now
Yesterday's trial and error
has slipped away
to its vaulted tomb
yet, Grace fills our wanton gaze
with the glory of 
a new day
spilling across 
earth's living-room.

Hope in full glory
Turns the page  with the rising sun
We are writing a story
By God's grace, let's make it a good one
