The Lord's House

"One thing I will ask of the Lord, one thing I will seek, for me to dwell
in the house of the Lord all the days of my life." Psalm 27:4


Your Light enlightens my true path;
Your Power empowers my true walk --
A journey in gtrace,
Over dirt, sand and gravel,
To Your Home, and there dwell
In the Land of the Living.

My face will gaze on Yor Face and
You will not turn away, nor
Will Your Eyes leave my gaze.

You wrap me in grace,
Shield my soul and
Rout the schemes
Of my soul's enemies.

Those soul-scammers,
Who rush from their prison blocks and
Invite me to their warmth,
Buy always, always, always,
Leave me with their chill.

Delivered from these liars,
I will free in the Land of the Living,
For You are the Father of Life,
Your Son is my Brother in life, and
Your Spirit breaths life into my soul.


Your Son, my Eyes,
Invites me to follow Him and
He will lead me
To Your Land,
To Your Home, and there
I will sit at the Table of God --
Nourished by peace and joy.

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.
