All Hallows

Embrace the golden splendor where it breaks
From folds of god-like garments. The shimmering
Harvest of my friends around me ripens in
The light reflected from the light which falls
Upon the broadening crowd. Breathe in reverence!
And whisper wondering, life-awakening words;
Living words inspired by rising beauty.
Contagious witness, praise, ripples the field
Of souls; praise at their glimpse of One enthroned:
“World-Making-Saving-Word”! The unity,
Redemption’s tide, where love and justice meet,
With wounded hands, to bring the ransomed home
Begins the chorus. Sung from one heart,
It spirals to an all-including round,
Resurging, swelling on, in waves of time;
And to the beat of ages echoing.
So, in the Lord’s eternal feast, the share
Of glory, joy, and praise will always grow.

  4. Thank you Pastor Dennis.
    Be always welcome to Voices of My Soul.
    God bless you and your family too.

  5. Adriano, thank you for your comment. In my sermons I always write from prayer and a surrender to God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. I lie down before the altar in my church and abandon myself to the will of God. This poem is different because the Lord took me to the place where what I wrote about was visible. I was not in this world when I saw what I wrote in this poem.
