SINNER TRANSGRESSING, by Carl A. Gooch

SINNER TRANSGRESSING

Your precious mercy shown

Because of your love unknown…

From sin I am forever free:

Your loving face I’ll see!

My soul with joy can say

A treasure has come today…

Your promises proven true:

Everything good came from you.

Like song birds of spring,

My heart brings praises to sing…

Deep down in my soul I know

You’re with me wherever I go!

Amazed I am by your blessings

For I was a sinner transgressing…

While sin had its grip on me,

Your suffering death set me free!

SUNDAY ALLEGORY

SUNDAY ALLEGORY

 

I rushed off to church like a craven

Sinner ungroomed and unshaven…

My friends welcomed me

With sincerity,

Even with the bath I’d forsaken!

Stories by Christians portray,

Would we recognize Him today….

If He came in our church

Smelly and besmirched,

Could our lack of faith turn Him away?

Parables of sheep and goats*

Remind that a Christian devotes…

Him or herself to see

Christ in all who need,

When stuck in those judgmental notes.

 

–Jonathan Caswell
