“Good” – by Evan Bolton

 

* * *

We stand and marvel at what is to come

A head, body and feet ready to run

We look ahead and consider

We sit back and wonder

Who am I, and who are you

There is more that lies behind the sky so blue

***

What is the voice that cries

This hope that begins to rise

It is a name and an empty form

That exceeds the one devoured by the worm

It speaks out and declares my worth

A call that has been present since birth

***

It says that I am very good

An identity that always should

Be ringing in my ears

For it silences all my fears

I am created wonderfully

My frame was assembled fearfully

***

It is a truth my soul knows well

A truth that breaks the ancient spell

The lie that says I am nothing

And condemns the dead and dying

But there is life that lies within

Inside the one whose life did win

***

For upon the cross a shout was given

A crying plea to see the forgiven

For through that cry there came a grace

That restores us to that fateful place

To a time where our hearts were true

A place where a desire grew

***

To see the one in whose image we were formed

In whose love and mercy we now stand adorned

For once again the word has been spoken

Goodness and beauty shall be our crowning token

Yes once again the word has been spoken

Goodness and beauty shall be our crowning token

***
