Lord And Hearth

September 13, 2014


With the firelight dim
Flickering on the wall
Warm drinks rest
Close at hand
And we bow our heads
Sighing our peace
Whispering our joy

The pine-smell is still
More than just memory
The bits of paper
Are still underfoot
And washed dishes
Haven’t lost
Their scent of a feast

That was sweet because of all of us
Because we were together
And the Lord was among us
Though shadows lurk
Awaiting the new year
And the seasons
That will test us as we go

And we hold our fears
At bay this night
For nothing
Can draw from us
His grace
His peace
His hope

Which is sweet for all of us
Because we are His forever
And the Lord will not forsake us
