Introduction to the Gospel for Easter Season

The Protector


There are clues to Godís protection even here;

You live for one thing! Safely through the night!

Godís greatest remedies are hid from sight,

horrendous evils break Godís heart. In tears

another mighty act by God is writ

when the second curtain lifts

and sorrow is erased by gifts

and at Godís groaning table sufferers sit.

Press you on! Remembíring how God cares;

you, of all good and truth - the heirs.


[Year B - Seventh Sunday of Easter]
