Just Us Together Praising God

  Beauteous young black woman with her rich alto voice inspiring,

  "Just us together praising God, Lord, I want to say,

  It's You I praise with all my gratitude every day",

  Her fiance takes her spiritual beauty in, then he begins,

  "My wounds from sin,

  Almost did me in,

  My Lord, Your strong hands,

  Took me to the paradise of the Promised Land",

  Then, her petite frame exhaled in their engagement party joy,

  Singing along with her betrothed, his greatest strength in his voice,

  "Just us together praising God, we abide in You when we

  receive Your body and blood,

  Our emotions overflow in a flood,

  Oh, Lord Jesus humanity loves You so,

  Neverending praises always flow,

  In great joy we sing, our voices to Heaven we sing,

  We hear Your lovely angels singing too,

  All glory given to You,

  Praising Your Name and Glory, we will always do,"

  Then, in the joining of their love and devotion,

  Their eyes sparkled with tears and words unspoken.

    Regina, what a beautiful lyrical prayer this is. It made me feel like I was there, a part of their engagement party joy. You wrote your poem in a very intimate and beautiful way that felt very natural and lovely. An amazing write of devotion, both for the couple with each other and together, their devotion for God. I love it my friend. Hugs and friendship always :))))
