The Lenten Call

Posted in Holy Spirit, Hope, Lent, Liturgical Calendar, Obedience, Sanctification, Spiritual Warfare at 6:36 am by Teresa Roberts Johnson

And now resounding through the turbid earth
The solemn call to keep a holy Lent
Would lift our eyes from things of little worth
And bid us find in Jesus true content.

As Spirit hovered over formless void
Dispelling chaos by the Word decreed,
He clears the wilderness that sin destroyed;
He fills our hearts with all we ever need.

Beauty for ash, and love to conquer fear,
The days of Lent teach us to comprehend
That all else fades when Jesus we hold dear.
We throw off worldly weights in order to ascend.
