Looking Forward

From Lamentations 5:7:  “Our ancestors sinned; they are no more, and we bear their iniquities.”

Life’s actions turning left

Mindless thoughts moving right

Endless, fruitless efforts

Waiting in depths of night


Tarnished hours filled with sin

Darkness sails for Hell’s fire

Tumult of restless seas

Facing evil’s crossfire


Righteousness marks new life

Son of God offers grace

Selfish aims fall away

Walking without disgrace


Always looking forward

Salvation’s cost, high-priced

Blood on Calvary’s cross

Looking to face of Christ


Mercy removes blindness

Empty tomb raises hope

Old ways crumble to dust

Clutching redemption’s rope

From Romans 3:23-24:  “Since all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God; they are now justified by His grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.”
