World’s Face

I fell off the world’s face
Down into the depths
Of disgrace
No hope, no saving grace
Mired deep
In a unholy place.

Then out of that depth
A saviour came
Putting his arms around
Making me claim my place
In blessed, holy time.

I live
Making no mistakes
Doing no crime
I see the world’s true face
It is such a wondrous place
And is now mine.

Definitely Not The One

Definitely not the one
I thought I’d write
Maybe then the one
I need to write.

Blessed be the time
That I see I’ve done no crime
Only good
For the sake of mankind.

That’s what I’ll write
Fill my pages full of beauty
Or maybe just delight
Yes this I need, I need to write.
