Mocking Grace

 

Roe vs. Wade

and its liberal supporters

have decreed thirty millions to their deaths

along with all their generations

the cost of our worlds war

the population of my nation

never breathing Gods good air

never living beneath His care

dead and consigned to dumps

not even a tear at a graveside shed

anonymous

merely a mothers choice

to let her baby die

 

and we stand there

critical

eyes wide open, feet planted firm

not doing a thing to save a life

Gods own children run away from home

we do not care, we cannot dare

“Our lives!” we cry

and quick deny

that grace which saved us from our sin

we have no faith to proclaim His power

we can barely feel His hand ourselves

how can we tell others

when we are so empty of His love

 

thirty millions dead

and countless more to follow

while we sing praise in our lovely churches

to our God whose wrath oerhangs our world

the barest instant separate all from death

and we think nothing of it

but spread many gracious words

 

would to God our world would be changed

 


 

At less than three months we lost our

first child.  We have no doubt a person

died that day whom we will meet in glory.

Would to God our world would be changed.
