The Church

The church that stands for truth and love,
Is a light for all to see.
It comes together to worship God,
because in Christ theyíre free.

The church in all its splendor stands
for truth thatís in Godís Word.
Where all His precepts are made clear,
And true salvationís sure.

The church shows grace to all who come
to know the Saviorís love.
Where shepherds guide the sheep with care,
Overseen by God above.

The church is without spot or blemish,
Washed in the blood of Christ.
His body, the life source of this earth,
Brings hope to hurting lives.

The church will rise one day from death,
To forevermore abide.
And weíll give glory to the One,
Who made us His holy bride.

Lovely images and message. Enjoyed this.

A word picture of the Church. Nice work! I'm maybe too picky about rhythm and meter, but some of the syllables made your rhythm inconsistent. Try to set a pace and stick to it and make sure the accents on the syllables fit with your rhythm. But, all in all, this is a wonderful example of what the Church is meant to be. Good work! Christmas blessings! :)

I like the length of this poem--just right for rhymed and metered poetry.

A few lines could use a slight metric adjustment to be entirely consistent, so your readers don't have a little mental "hiccup" when the meter changes.

The content and the message are fantastic.

Agree on all counts...good message, perfect length, good progression of thought, good structure that more than a week would undoubtedly have improved even more!

Congratulations, Randy, on placing 12th in your level. Great work!
