LOVE OF GOD AM I
and post notes and photos about your poem like Beata Agustin.
I’m love, expressing the Creator’s heart
For God is love, and love is the greatest
Magnifying miracle-mercy moves
Toward prayer’s length; upward service strength
Defying Venus and Aphrodite’s might.
Wondrous sight is it to cite my marvels
With my grace-light and care, I light and care
Helping well thru my compassionate mercy
My patience is like eternal hope…
Yet in my reign forever; death, I’ll smite.
Verily, I’m God’s most supreme kindness
Causing Christ to carry cross of Calv’ry
Leaving His throne of glory in Heaven
To reach down to Adam’s world that’s condemned
Granting salvation… life everlasting.
My precious loss is hatred’s advantage
Yet its grand schemer can never prevail
For he’s a conquered foe back in Eden.
Do you share God’s love? Is charity* yours?
Be not faithless; trust the Lord to have me.
*1Peter 5:14 Greet ye one another with a kiss of charity. Peace be with you all that are in Christ Jesus.
