All Grace

Regret is a bully with heavy shoes
Self-confidence a fraud
Accomplishment is a sad ruse
Without the love of God

Despair blinds us to what is good
Blame crushes precious hope
Courage cannot do what it should
Without God’s hand to hold

Anger; the scythe that slaughters joy
Fear dictates where faith fails
Belief is but a misplaced buoy
Lest God’s sure truth prevails

Guilt cannot abdicate at will
Nor can remorse forgive
Life without God is death until
At last by grace we live
