New Today





 For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities--his eternal power and divine nature--have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse. Rom.1:20


Time’s light, not long before
Was deftly drawn away
Now from the Gate of Mercy pours
The dawn of new Today

In spite of creature ways
Love does not still time’s sands
But tips the scales of holy grace
To Newness in our hands

We stand in awe, agape
This God of gracious love
From deepest, darkest dark can shape
Morning from midnight’s trove

And where the air was black
As hearts that lost their way
God does not scoff nor turn His back
But grants a New Today

Our days are in God’s hands
All things on Him rely
As hope entrust time’s ether sands
To He who parts the sky
