PostSubject: Saving grace   Sat May 04, 2013 1:42 am


Walkin' the green mile in the Mile High

"Martinez, death sentence...tell your people goodbye"

I see raging gray waters under the bright blue sky

as I stand before judgment, not ready to die...



Shaking and scared, unable to run

I cried out for mercy...someone...anyone...

as a book was presented labeled Volume 1

and in it was recorded every wrong I'd ever done



Wrongs against my family, wrongs against my friends

The dirt I did towards strangers, never making amends

The list goes on and on though Volume 1 never ends

and I was guilty of them all...as my soul descends



"Michael Martinez, how do you plead"

"Insanity, Father, the world planted a seed"

"It drove me mad for the lust and for the evil and the greed"

"Yet I stand guilty against the laws that you decreed"



I was guilty towards the grace that I received

and guilty towards the love that I deceived

but Christ interceded...I was redeemed, I was retrieved

He said "You did as I asked, child; you loved me back because you believed"

"You did as I asked, child; you loved me back because you believed"

And worthy of many repeated reads!

Mighty One for sure and gets the reader right to the point of atonement and our reprobate state...but for the life of Christ within.

Powerfull presentation, to say the least. "Volume 1 never ends" that hits home.
