June 11, 2016 - September 8, 2020


each time you open your mouth

foolish words escape, and spread

into our world, sounding so wise

yet denying all that God has said

as if the commands of our Creator

are things to be discarded

should they grind against our grain


yet wood cannot deny its lathe

whose work carves pain to beauty

or complain its master knows not

how best its beauty may be found

but rest secure within the spindles

and rejoice beneath its masters hand

they love Him best who likewise sing
