PostSubject: For Shame   Tue Jun 07, 2016 5:03 am

As I stood in front of the Lord,

My head was hung in shame.

He told me to raise my head

As He called me by my name.

 

I glanced at Him with a bowed head,

And said “but Lord, I am poor”

He said “but I love you anyway”

As I looked upon the floor.

 

I was still standing with head bowed

When I said “but Master, I am ugly and old”

That’s when he stretched out his arm

And gave me his hand to hold.

 

I looked at his hand

And did not want to see

The holes that were there

So I fell to bended knee.

 

I still kneeled with  head hung in shame

And said “but Lord, I have been discriminated against for all these things.

He said “you are not alone in that my child

But that is not what my love brings”.

 

Raise you head up proudly

And be humble as you look them in the eye

Tell them you are a child of mine

And you have something all their money cannot buy.

 

For I will love you always

As I have for so very long

So do as you know I would

And in my love stand strong.
