MY ETERNAL GRIEF

Damned forever I was to wallow in hell’s despair As filthy transgressor beyond reasonable doubt Yet, with His grace, mercy and truth*, midst grave verdict’s stare The Saviour in His love assuaged my eternal grief. So blinded by pride, paralyzed from selfishness’ bout… Oh, in sin’s deep miry clay I had sunk unaware I thank the Lord, He reached down to me with pardon’s clout. By faith, I now ascend for fruitful service welfare Helping, cheering others turn toward heavenly route... Assuring that though I face trials bringing heart’s scare The Saviour in His love assuaged my eternal grief.
*Psalm 86:15 "But thou, O Lord, art a God full of compassion, and gracious, longsuffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth." February 16, 2019 5th place, "Writing Challenge, Feb 2019, Roundel Form" Poetry Contest Sponsored by Dear Heart; judged on 3/6/2019.
