"How Can Any of Us Be Saved?"


 
      Although this is my first post at Five Doves, I have followed the many letters that appear here for some time now.
 

      At times, I wonder how any of us can be saved since all of us fall so short of perfection.  But then the spirit reminds me of the words of a song I remember from childhood.

    He can turn the tides and calm the angry sea
    He alone decides who writes a symphony
    He lights ev'ry star that makes the darkness bright
    He keeps watch all through each long and lonely night

    He still finds the time to hear a child's first prayer
    Saint or sinner calls and always finds him there
    Though it makes him sad to see the way we live
    He'll always say "I forgive"

    He can touch a tree and turn the leaves to gold
    He knows every lie that you and I have told
    Though it makes him sad to see the way we live
    He'll always say "I forgive"

    He forgives

    Amen

    He is coming quickly.
