One Shot Wednesday – It’s that time again! Here’s my one shot for Easter Week.
Courts of Praise
Thank you, my Lord, for my life long,
For beloved family and friends,
And all dear hearts touching mine.
My treasure trove of souls
Spills far beyond my time
To number as my own
Those who have gone before,
Your saints of ages past,
The cloud of witnesses on high
And pure angelic beings
In realms veiled from the eye.
There never was a day
In which I was alone,
Before Your throne.
There, at Your feet,
All heaven sweet anthems raise,
To set celestial hearts ablaze.
My heart, in chorus,
Swells, dilating in love,
Grown great in gratitude.
Beside Your All Love,
I make small return.
You count my debt as paid,
And bid me enter courts of praise.
