A POEM SELECTION FROM MY BOOK*

FAITH IN FAILURE (A non-limerick Christian poem)

Our God is faith to His sons,

Although things may go bad…

He sends his mercies still

E’en when we feel we’ve been had!

He lets us fail to prove**

His love in trouble prevails…

His wisdom beckons us on

With love to fill our sails.

The Lord Almighty God reigns,

Over fierce wind and storm…

We carry His spirit inside

Which encourages and warms!

–Jonathan Caswell

*the book being “SPIRIT-LED LIMERICKS AND OTHER CHRISTIAN POETRY, by Jonathan Caswell

**This stanza is radically changed from the original on Page 56.
