Catholic's Devotion - Poem by Obed dela Cruz


Though sanctu'ries be filled of murals and stained glasses,
But if Scriptures are not engraved deep within the heart,
Then what wisdom can be imparted from the sages?
What foolishness of the grave can tear the world apart?

I pause for a while to set aside the rosary,
For in truth that Cathedral priests cannot save my soul.
Now my eyes are set upon the Lamb of Calvary,
The Lamb that was slaughtered to forgive the world in whole.

To You O God Almighty I give my devotion,
To You shall I spend the dearest moments of my life!
Let me understand what happens after Salvation
So that I may carry no more the bitterest strife.

I flee from the dome that kept me from seeing Heaven
But promise me that You'll keep me safe in perfect health.
My will is not to condemn any of the brethren
But to share the treasures I consider beyond wealth.

Arise O Lord and make known of Your power and might!
Let the universe bow before Your glory in awe.
My one soul surrender, please shine in the darkest night!
For I shall scribe the things I heard and the things I saw.

Grant me Your wisdom, Your Inspiration, my Lord,
For I dare not to live by the sword, but by Your Word.
