Holy Interlude





Ah life, and what a Thing thou art
Momentous stepping-stone
As breath by breath thou dost impart
Thy crucial metronome

Ah life, and were it not for Grace
Then we know none could bear to face
The prospect of thy grave

Ah life, dost thou impress enough
Thy gravity of breath
This inhale, exhale journey of
Deliverance or Death?

Thy suffering were cruelly vain
Without love’s Higher Hope
Thy utter-best the lords of pain
Where fearsome demons grope

Ah life, compendious prelude
Of choice-dexterity
A holy, vapor interlude
Before eternity

'Choices, choices, choices !' repeats the workout instructor, 'and what are you going to do with those choices?'

Ah life, thy pinnacles are dust
and we must choose
Whom we will trust
Earth's lesser gods
Can never save
The soul of man
From Hades grave...

Did you know the God who created heaven and earth loves you so much that He sent His Son Jesus as a sacrifice for man's sin, delivering us from Death? Will we choose The Greatest Love Story of All?
