Making the Best of Imperfection

Blooms and babies/tots; two steadfast perfections
in a world full of much that is not!

Make the best of imperfection
Tell me, what more can we do?
Morning’s faithful resurrection
Anoints track-records with dew

…where we, familiar with failure
Feel for faith’s footholds once more
Ways to truly ‘love your neighbour’
Better than we did before

Through the freedom of forgiveness
We can live a worship-hymn
  Light life's do and say with gladness
While its days are growing dim

Shine the love of He who loved us
So, He sent His only Son
 So the righteousness of Jesus
Can make righteous, everyone

Make the best of imperfection
Tell me, what else can we do?
Morning's faithful resurrection
Grants fresh grace for me and you

...makes the best of imperfection
Through the perfect love of He
Who, through mercy's kind inflection
Grants fresh hope to you and me

 “There is no fear in love. 
But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment.  
The one who fears is not made perfect in love.  
We love because He first loved us.” 
 1 John 4:18-19
