ALL in the universe that is not brutal

crippling the rainbow
i steal Your color;
cold air from my cold heart
sends Your warmth
away,
blends then blurs
everything You had to say
to me
today.
Jesus, what was it
You wanted to say
when i was hunting for quotes,
when i was shopping for roast
and felt angry over prices –
what was it you wanted to say
when my fear crept over me
and ruled my thoughts
those minutes
over a cup of tea,
when doors slammed
and people hammered on the newborn
in our building.
“blessed are the persecuted.”
i hear you now, Beloved Saviour,
i am listening
to ALL in the universe that is not
brutal,
from a world
which is.

can you stay here?

Merciful Lord

Merciful Lord, merciful Lord
merciful Lord, merciful Lord
who lifted the world’s sins
grant them peace,
grant them peace
Merciful Lord, merciful Lord
merciful Lord, merciful Lord
who lifted the world’s sins
grant them peace,
grant them peace
God’s Lamb, God’s Lamb,
God’s Lamb, God’s Lamb
who lifted the world’s sins
grant them peace,
grant them peace
Everlasting
Everlasting
Peace.

in the beginning

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  The same was in the beginning with God.  All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

In him was life; and the life was the light of men.  And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

John 1: 1-5
