Sin is a droplet
Sin is a droplet turned steam,
Barely approaching Mercy’s flame,
Like darkness found by sunbeams,
God delights in all repentant claims,
Quickly banishing whatever blame,
“At Last!” His image now reclaimed.
Merciful, forever, merciful,
God and love shines one in the same,
A shoulder to the remorseful,
Holding our hand when we’re unable.
Faith, hope, and love give us soulrest –
Deep within Messiah’s cradle,
We emerge baptized, wet and grateful to bless.
The doomed droplet mists a saving rain,
Death becomes life when repentance gained,
Knowing that in Christ there is no shame,
This excited bride awaits her Husband to claim.
…if we but turn and believe the reason He came.
“Cast thy care upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee: he shall not suffer
the just to waver for ever.”
(Psalm 55:22 Douay-Rheims Bible)
