Grace & Glory

DSCN6846
Splendor in the setting sun,
where neither nights nor days
reside against the sunset blaze.

Unfair, unearned, unjust…
Complimentary sacrificial source;
as shadows skulk off course.

No virtue in man without God;
His grace, His shield, His glory…
Be sheltered in the great I Am.


“For the Lord God is a sun and shield;
The Lord will give grace and glory;
No good thing will He withhold from
those who walk uprightly.” Psalm 84:11

  1. No virtue in man without God;
    His grace, His shield, His glory…
    Be sheltered in the great I Am.

    You quote Ps.84 at the end and you, yourself are a psalmist of today. Lovely.

  2. Wonderful write. Love the assonance, alliteration and rhythm in the second stanza:

    “Unfair, unearned, unjust…
    Complimentary sacrificial source;
    as shadows skulk off course.”
