(Looking up and beyond)

Please withhold your wrath, Our Lord,as we are young and still know not the power of it.

Please withold your wrath, Our Lord, as we are old and fragile, some, and now forget the strength of it.

How dare we say such things belonging to another world - the face of your glory.

Dare we indeed, oh yes, but only because we tread on the sands of unthinking souls

Where the might of the ocean predicts our time and our place, permitted by none other than the best of all, your beautiful face.

Absolutely right Jennifer. "How dare we say such things belonging to another world - the face of Your glory." It is not for us to say; not in this sinful and caring world. Well done my friend.
