I have found God’s safe arms,
In the midst of a thousand hurts,
Caused by the painful pricks,
Of the thousands of cheap trinkets,
That I thought were my pleasure.
Temporary satisfactions quickly fade,
When they are faced by truth.
Joy is found with God’s words,
To his beloved child who seeks loyalty.
He found me in my despair,
And, brought me to my deep gladness,
Then I heard Eternity’s words,
Speaking in Love’s whisper,
Words of enduring endearment,
That become my completed joy.
My life is founded on eternal promise,
Despair’s bottomless death spiral,
Is transformed into a path to possibility,
The way imagined from Creation’s beginning,
Finding its fulfillment in a shared love,
Creator and creation exploring love forever.
