A Sense of wonder

 

A special sense of wonder and peace,

Is offered by the Father, who claims the lease,

On this His fallen world.

 

Not our world but His world!

For do you not comprehend or understand,

That He who so majestically arose from the dead,

Offers to each of us each day, the joy of wonder.

 

And that my friend is the gift from God and no other!

Peace, perfect peace, announces the popular hymn,

Sadly today it has been worn hoarse by repetition and shame.

 

But the lasting gift of Peace I urgently seek,

Can only be offered by Him, Who long ago offered His bruised bleeding cheek. In place of mine! 

How wonderful. How peaceful. How divine!
