Other Poems by Gillena Cox


Father:
our God is to us
Heavenly:
the quality that is He
Hallowed:
His named is to be praised
Come!
He invites us into his kingdom.
Will
He let us in?
Earth:
we know is not the final place
Bread:
sustaining life; satisfying needs
Forgive:
others and ourselves
Temptation:
always present; by faith are we wary
Deliver:
a task unshrugged by our saviour
Evil:
fear not, but rather; trust in the Lord.
