Once More...

Once more Thy gracious goodness
Startles the drowsing lea
Thy everlasting witness
Doth comfort what must be  

To crypts of soulful hunger
Once more Thy mercy sends
A measure of new moments
That naught but Love defends

...and we of lesser knowing
Lift up hearts full of praise
Once more to Thee, bestowing
Thy patience to our ways

Ah, Shepherd of kind Essence
Hear this from humble dust
Awake in us Thy Presence
Once more, so we may trust

Janet Martin~

I would like to reply to you
    and to your friends with you.
Look up at the heavens and see;
    gaze at the clouds so high above you.
If you sin, how does that affect him?
    If your sins are many, what does that do to him?
If you are righteous, what do you give to him,
    or what does he receive from your hand?
Your wickedness only affects humans like yourself,
    and your righteousness only other people. 

Job 35:4-8
