Words of Purpose?

How can words affect a people,
Lord, in lasting ways?
How can a pen exalt Your graces
and inspire praise?
Can be even captured that
within the heart to surge?
But God, cause words and paragraphs!
Make poetry to merge!

Say things about the majesty
just there beyond the reach...
remind us in that dialect
no sage could ever teach!
Make us to know vision that
no artist e'er could paint!
Visit us in ways that make
the strongest men to faint!!

How can words affect a people?
Not as well as You!
A pen cannot recount some things,
especially the view!
Until then, there remains so much
unknown to eyes and ears,
it is told only to the heart
of him that perseveres!

How can words affect a people?
Only for awhile.
So let this man's bring contemplation,
comfort and a smile.

Thank you my Brother...this is simply beautiful, God has blessed you indeed!

I am a recovering alcoholic, and would humbly ask if I could share your work with fellow addicts?

May God continue to inspire you, and I'm so happy I found your work.
God bless you
