God's Wedding Band


I will not fear
The day I die
If you ask me
I’ll tell you why

I have been sealed
By God I think
Not with a pen
Nor any ink

‘Twas a signet
Made for my hand
Could it have been
God’s wedding band

Once I was sealed
The seal was tossed
Until this day
It has been lost

Yet I wonder
Where might it be
I hear its voice
Call out to me

Maybe one day
We’ll meet again
And we just may
Abolish sin

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
