"Joyful is the man whose trust is in the name of the Lord,...."
Psalm 40:4


Trust IS Jesus --
The Shepherd-True of
The worried and weighted,
Who like a Life-Giving River
That floods away stagnant pools,
Dark waters, night waters,
Of spirit-vex.

Trust IS Jesus --
The Shepherd-True of
The smiling, the honest, the child-like,
So, Father, grace me to trust sure as a child
And not run child-frenzied
After truthless toys or
After vacuumes.

Trust IS Jesus --
The Shepherd-True of
The wounded and scarred, for,
He is the Wound-Cleaner,
The Scar-Healer,
Who never turns away
From a bowed prayer or
A kneeling plea.


Enrich my spirit with courage,
Courage in Your Will for
What is gone,
What is today,
What is to come --

The grace pf trust.

About the Poet
I am 79 years of age. For the past nine years I have been retired, after forty years, from the field of alcoholism and drug abuse in New York City. I am married and we have two grown sons and two grand-sons. My life changed through a grace-experience in 1967. Writing Christian prayers is a particular interest of mine. This came about by a growing awareness of the spiritual in recovery from addictions. I choose, intellectually and emotionally, to believe the Triune God of the Sared Scriptures as my Healer.
