The Opportune Moment - Poem by Denis Martindale

Perceive the opportune moment,
The second so sublime,
The precious gift that's Heaven-sent
At that most gracious time
When charity is uppermost
Within our hearts and minds
And shares the vision coast-to-coast
With each soul that it finds...

For love itself holds nothing back,
Like God, it never sleeps,
Not while another's made to lack
Or while another weeps
For love condemns all selfish greed
And shares its very best,
With prayers to meet our every need
So that each soul is blessed.

When Christmas comes, each father gives
To those both near and far,
For deep within his heart there lives
An ever-guiding star
He may not count the smiles he brings
And yet God knows them all,
Just like He knows the hymns each sings
Which say He's wonderful

Though storms may rage and thunders roar
And floods fill us with fear,
Though damning doubts may overpour,
Still Christmas comes each year
For life goes on and new faith grows,
Like after Calvary
Blessed is the heart that overflows
With well-timed charity.
