April 21 - May 17, 2020
oddly enough and despite the depressing news
this storm seems not to have touched me adversely
my head is in a better place than it’s been in years
I’m seeing more of my family than at normal times
and Monday at the bank, lined up down the block
the assistant manager pulled me from the very end
as busy as she was, to help me deposit my cheques
no, though the world seems mad around me
within these walls I scarcely note the storm
and yet these bricks themselves can hardly shield
are but concrete and mortar on two-by-four frame
could not apprehend fear any more than could dust
I live within a greater wall, made by a greater Hand
than were these strengthless bits of dust and ash
though fear and worry would storm without
bright through all these days still shines the Son
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice!
Let your gentle spirit be known to all men.
The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing,
but in everything by prayer and supplication
with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension,
will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
“As for me, I know that my Redeemer lives,
and at the last He will take His stand on the earth.
Even after my skin is destroyed,
yet from my flesh I shall see God;
whom I myself shall behold,
and whom my eyes will see and not another.
My heart faints within me!”
