WORSHIP HIS MAJESTY

WORSHIP HIS MAJESTY

A Poem by Marianne

Such sorrow
Unknown to mankind
Such holy ground, that hill
Such punishment for my sins
Such proof of love, for one like me
Such grace, amazing and free
Such a Saviour who died
Not shunning the cross
Such wretched words he cried
That I may live to see
Such victory for you and me


I turn to him who calls my name
A new creation
My heart unashamed
Such freedom now to sing for joy
Such love bestowed
From heaven above
'Surely goodness and mercy
Shall follow me
All the days of my life,
And I will dwell in the house
Of the Lord forever'.

This review is from a person that believes in a higher power, but doesn't affiliate with any particular religion. Your poem is beautifully written, but I will mark a few points down since the whole poem isn't an original work. I tend to reduce points on writings if the entire poem isn't original. Having said it I feel that you have a great poem here.

What beautiful and sincere feeling behind the words, Marianne .. to feel as you do and create such a prayer-like poem is a true tribute to your belief.

There is a light that leads us through the valley of the shadow of death... Here you voice such joy that rose from deepest pain and suffering... and for us.. Your words pour out wondrous praise!
