With The Word

It starts with a word,
   a whisper of heart.
It quakes 'til it's heard;
   from mouth, depart.

Let it convey the idea;
   let it stir, move the soul.
A rhetorical panacea;
   a kind of balm to make one whole.

Let my words be an arrow
   to point the way to the Life.
from the broad to the Narrow;
   keep us there through the strife.

This is my reason for being here;
   this is my purpose why I write:
Encourage us all to come near
  the only One, Good and Right.

It started with the Word;
   whispering in my heart.
I quaked 'til I heard;
   prayed, "Grace impart!"

More than an idea,
   He came to save the soul.
True spiritual Panacea;
   God's Balm to make us whole.

He became the Arrow,
   pointing to the Life.
Talked of the broad and the narrow,
   where we might be in strife.

For this reason He was here;
   this, Whom holy men would write.
He made a way we may come near;
   the only One, Good and Right.

Take the Word of His heart;
    take it now, become right.
When you die, you'll depart
   to the One, God of Might.
