My Portion Forever
A hand reaches into the void
of his soul
and gently touches the open wounds
that iniquity had so violently bestowed
upon it throughout the history
of the sinner's existence.
With each loving movement
the tender caress of the Saviour
mends every laceration
even the slightest hint
In place of the void
the Redeemer places
There he lingers
truth and forgiveness
and newness of life-
essentials that the once-wayward
sinner never knew he could possess.
And from this moment on
his soul sings
"My flesh and my heart may fail
but God is the strength of my heart
and my portion forever".
