SAVED AND SANCTIFIED


The blazing fire of His love,
Engulfs the universe,
Every soul in love with God,
Is fuelled by its force.
The burning love of Jesus Christ,
Calls out to all who’ve sinned,
He will not snuff the tiny wick,
That flickers in the wind.

From His pierced and wounded heart,
Flow streams of living grace,
Repentant sinners find in Him,
A prodigal embrace.
Angels jubilate in song,
When one who sins and strays,
Repents and seeks forgiveness,
In the Name of Him who saves.

The unrepentant sinner,
Who sins without remorse,
Sinning with impunity,
Heedless of God’s laws,
Shudders in revulsion
From God whose Name is Love,
Made manifest by heaven,
In the symbol of a dove.

The penitent forgiven much,
Like Mary Magdalen,
Gladly picks the cross to follow
Christ Who vanquished sin.
Called to fight the enemy,
As a ransomed race,
Receiving through the sacraments,
The power of His grace.

    The attributes of a great lady may still be found in the rule of the four S's: Sincerity, Simplicity, Sympathy and Serenity.

    I believe these truly describe the poems you write.
