Song For the Meek

cropped-road-to-emmaus.jpg

Beautifies the meek, yes

He does this oh so well

Dismisses doubters’ ranklings

And all their hate dispels

A grace that marches calmly

Through “everyday’s” demands

And hugs and uplifts

Tenderly

With carpenter’s strong hands.

He speaks a view celestial

A home for all oppressed

Where all who hold on bravely

Find comfort, kin and rest.

His victories challenge reason

Not brought by might or blade

Convicting simple goodness

The way new saints are made.

And oh to journey like him

With thoughts of righteous worth

And deeds to draw times closer

When meek shall rule the earth.
