Of Well-springs and Wonder

Well-spring of wonder
Merciful Morning
Soothes yester-heaviness
From troubled brow
Somewhere between
Dusk-darkness and dawning
God fills the hour
With Morning’s new Now

Just as the New Year
Melds o’er the departed
Merciful Morning
Melts night’s ebony
Light fills the ocean
Of onyx impression
Well-spring of wonder
In grace-symphony

See, heaven’s hand
He held Jordan’s waters
Doom and deliverance
Meet at death’s brink
See how He fills
Night’s hollow with morning
Kneel at His well-spring
Of mercy and drink

Over and over morning melts the night and Grace extends His arm.

Tell them, ‘Israel crossed the Jordan on dry ground.’  For the Lord your God dried up the Jordan before you until you had crossed over. The Lord your God did to the Jordan what he had done to the Red Sea when he dried it up before us until we had crossed over.  He did this so that all the peoples of the earth might know that the hand of the Lord is powerful and so that you might always fear the Lord your God.” Joshua 4:22-24


  1. And so be your font a well-spring, I am tickled. :)

  2. Thank-you TUG. Somehow it was that thought-line that got me to thinking about hope's glorious well-spring. I appreciate your response of understanding:))


Thank-you for stopping by my porch! I hope you were blessed!
