More Than a Circuit of Sunsets...

Day rises
Then sets
With its triumph,
Where fear and faith contend
Night falls
And Time begets
Another day, my friend

God gives
And takes
Heart sings
And aches
Pride breaks the golden rule
But God
Who loves
Us so
His grace forgives this fool

Man’s mortal
Of heart
And head
As we shed blood and tears
The embrace
Of One
Whose grace
Is greater than our years

The roof
Of sky
Where we, fixed on earth’s sod
Should not
Time’s transient
Is held in hands of God

 He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved. In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace…Eph. 1:5-7
