Saviour is He

The Angel spoke thus:

 

My Father gave

In charge to me

This child of earth

From its birth, even

To serve and save,

Alleluia,

And Saviour is He.

 

This Child of clay

To me was given,

To rear and train

By sorrow and pain

In the narrow way,

Alleluia,

From earth to heaven.

Faith and Hope

A calling for us not to become Pagans:

 

Renaissance beauty

Made to be jolly

That surrounds me.

 

Christian virtue

Made holy in values

Built into statues.

 

Heaven’s perspective

Made open and relevant

Propagated ideals.

 

Western civilisation

Made all to be hopeful

Calling the faithful.

 

Radical changes

Embraced in earnest

Inspiration of our greatest.

 

God’s people

Everywhere joyful

Never were they forgetful. 

 

Nations confused

Each of us nonplussed

Turn our backs on good.

 

Thus, Future generations

Take open your Gospels

Reach for the truth

The seal of peace.

 

The Lord is Our Vessel

~

 

The Lord works mysterious wonders:

When we are tired, he brings strength

When we are hungry, he feeds us

When we are angry, he calms

When we are jealous, he forgives

When we are shallow, he is wise.

 

If the Lord is our vessel:

We are set free, without limitation;

When lost, we seek welcome shelter

When starved, providence provides

When lonely, loved

When restless, inspired.

 

The Lord is all of these things

and many more through Christ, 

the Son of Man.

 

Amen.
