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…

Pages on hope

Another new page for you…

To continue the thread of making this site a better resource for you, I’ve added another ‘permanent’ page that will take you to posts that probe the concept and experience of Hope.

And don’t forget the pages on Prayer I added a few weeks ago.

Both pages are now part of the main menu above; you can also use the buttons below for easy access.

Grace and peace to you…
