An Alphabet Poem for the Christian Life
A gentle breeze beguiles my face--
Been months since we were chastened by
Cold wind. The evening rains give grass
Dense mastery of ground. The Lord's
Evangel blesses those who hear;
Fills every saint with joy and peace;
Gives knowledge of the Lord--It might
Here be in blizzard or in drought--
I should not care--dependable
Just as it's written. Scripture says,
Keep going through the sun and storm,
Lift up your hands in prayer to God.
May all that humid heat not damp
New meditations of new life.
Our succor is in Christ our Lord.
Place confidence in Him, not man.
Quail not for man, but God alone.
Resist the devil; he will flee.
Sure grace that made you hear God's Word--
This grace in you remains for aye--
Undaunted by the summer heat.
Voice of the preacher edifies.
Why so? God is with you; the Lord--
X writ in Greek is "Chi" for Christ--
Your Savior. Grass turns brown or green--
Zip up when cold--know Christ is Lord.
