ALMOST DEFEATED

In weakness, failure all around, I cry
The enemy draws swords to wounded prey
Was I rejected from your grace today?
I heard no voice, no peace, as your reply

I’m taken before peers as my review
They stare in judgment at the circumstance
I call to You to give me just one chance
That in your kindness You would make things new

I know You are so merciful to me
Your love abounds despite how things may seem
Your goodness overflows from heaven’s stream
The price was paid in blood, my guarantee

You see my tears and send deliverance
The cross completed full all recompense

Sonnet, Laurie A. Stasi 4/24/13
