A Time

There is a time

the whole creation’s been waiting for;

When all the evil

in this sore, sore world

will be laid bare and die.

And when that time does come

we’ll life a shout of joy

For then our home is just around the bend

and by His mercy He will take us there.

There’s a place

There’s a time

There’s a land where truth still reigns

There’s a God in heav’n above

Angels bow before Him.

Verse 2 and Chorus 2 of Song of Hope by dw

I promised to share the next verse with you – here it is; one more to come!

Grace and peace to you…

A Place

There’s a place

where I will stand before my Maker;

A place that’s free

from all the worries of this world;

a place of inner quiet.

There I fall down on my knees

and lay my burdens down

And He takes me by the hand

and lifts me to where the eagles fly.

There’s a place

There’s a time

There’s a land where mercy reigns

There’s a God in heav’n above

Angels bow before Him.

Verse 1 and Chorus 1 of Song of Hope by dw

The words of this song have been on my mind quite a bit lately and I’ve felt a prompt to share them here with you. Two more verses and choruses coming soon.

Grace and peace to you…

Words in Black and White

Any words I might offer

Would detract from these

Stuck in my soul

Oozing the cure for not caring enough

Wrapping the wounds

In tight bands of open-eyed hope and mercy


With no further ado, here are the words, words I gathered from James Cone in his book The Cross and the Lynching Tree; words I hope will wound and heal in your soul as they have in mine. Grace and peace to you…
