Guardian of the heart
Rend this vile flesh, to see
The grievous, wretched, unseen part
That wars, inside of me

Plexus of twisted web
Self, pride and strands of strife
Pernicious fibres, grip and ebb
The vital flow of life

Guilt droplets, formed by guile
Infused, with doubt and dread
Anastomose and now defile
The very fountain-head

Sanative Word of God
Exact the effective cure
Imparted righteousness, alone
Can make this vessel pure

Cleanse, sanctify, restore
Grace upon grace, bestow
Spirit of God, in love out-pour
And make this wellspring flow


Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.
Proverbs 4:23 KJV

Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom.
Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice.
Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.
Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.
Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.
Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.
Psalm 51:6-13 KJV

I am touched that this was selected by the judges and also by the kind words of encouragement left here. Thank you all sincerely, from my heart. It is my hope and prayer that this feeble offering will be used in some way to help a fellow sojourner. May God bless, Deb

I like this very much. Sorry it took me so long to notice it but it is my type of poem, Scriptural, meaningful and rhyming. Every blessing to you as you write to the glory of God.
