When God redeems
   all things are new,
All bitterness falls
     to streams like sand.

When God redeems
   the heav'ns awake;
Applause and cheers on every side
     burst forth.

When God redeems
     the heart gives o'er,
     Surrendered to its primal bliss.

When God redeems
     the earth stands still
     Silenced in awe, yet praise.

For what was thought
   once doomed and ruined
     Now stands unblemished
     through the holiness of love.
Not of man -
          Nor of will -
            but as only the Blessing
                When God through His Grace redeems.

Dear Stephanie,.,

This poem by a new author of mine I read and share with is an inspiration that Tom is at peace to me. and I am glad she sent it to me and I can read it and pass it on. I know you will get feelings of joy from it too. I wish I could only write like this. Love, Lois

The subject of this poem is a matter of blessing and awe. I like the repetition of the theme and the progression of ideas. This kind of poem is a 'sweet smelling offering' to God.
Thank you.

When God redeems He seems to hit me upside the head. Your poem typifies the swirlie-whirlie feeling I get afterwards. LB
