After the Cross

August 14, 2010

after the cross
under the blood
all darkness removed
in light’s holy flood

promise unfolding
blemish erased
beauty from dust
glory and grace

nothing between us
me and my Lord
all sweet communion
sinner restored

walking together
sit at His feet
rest in this mercy
life now complete

often I find myself
standing without
wiping my feet again
suffering doubt

forgetting forgiveness
living like lost
yet offered communion
after the cross

  1. “wiping my feet again
    suffering doubt”

    it would be nice, no, to take off our shoes and walk across a clean floor and revel in the smooth coolness under our soles?

    so pleased that you got inspired! 🙂

  2. This is so beautiful. I read it, and it just comes with a melody.
