God is inviting man to share His heaven,


          after man killed His Son on earth.

What is significant about 21 years,

Twenty-one years wed?

What, today is there to say, of weight,

That has not been already said?


To talk of roses, or even the daisy,

With its she-loves-me pedals and button,

Is simply to say, another way,

The worthless words of the amorous glutton.


And should one speak of memories,

Sweater, than side-meat is salty,

Memories, no lack; they go way back, to when

We thought that love was never faulty.


Perhaps it is there, that soul meets soul;

There on the spine of fact.

I love you more than I used to, And

Knowing my faults, that is quite an act.

I hear the Savior say,
“Thy strength indeed is small;
Child of weakness, watch and pray,
Find in Me thine all in all.”

Jesus paid it all,
All to Him I owe;
Sin had left a crimson stain,
He washed it white as snow.

2. For nothing good have I
Whereby Thy grace to claim,
I’ll wash my garments white
In the blood of Calv’ry’s Lamb.

3. And now complete in Him
My robe His righteousness,
Close sheltered ’neath His side,
I am divinely blest.

4. Lord, now indeed I find
Thy power and Thine alone,
Can change the leper’s spots
And melt the heart of stone.

5. When from my dying bed
My ransomed soul shall rise,
“Jesus died my soul to save,”
Shall rend the vaulted skies.

6. And when before the throne
I stand in Him complete,
I’ll lay my trophies down
All down at Jesus’ feet.
