January 2-10, 2022

 

another Sunday, another service

in tears again as men I cannot trust

presume to tell what the Bible says

whose favoured thoughts, careless,

interpose themselves between me

and the Truth for which I hunger

 

I am in tears, these men cannot do it

cannot teach Gods life-giving Truth

and leave Gods plain words stand

but must add to His their glib overlay

obscure His gold by their lead veneer

hide Truth beneath a doubtful garnish

 

and I find myself in a difficult place

I long to honour He Who made me

I want to respect the men before me

I must obey the word of the God I love

and allow them officiate my obedience

pray His love redeem their carelessness

 


Another Sunday
