The love of God

A love that willingly exchanged
the perfect wonder,
perfect honour,
perfect praise,
for weakness, schemes and sneers ranged
around, suspicion,
malicious, murderous intention.

For what? and why?
The only way that I
could be washed clean enough to enter holy heaven –
he took the penalty of death I’d earned, and I can be forgiven.

And now he does not slay all evil straight away,
but helps us while he calls to all who stray.
