A Better Way

Forgive thy neighbor
Love thy enemy
Console thy friend
Hold not to enmity

Embrace thy mother
Hold dear thy father
Forget not thy sister
Nor closest brother

See eye to eye
With all there is
But one to share
Too hard to miss

Remember love
In deepest doubt
Through shadows thick
So ends heart’s drought

No fear to hold
Worries naught to bear
Though dreams we hide
We’ll soar through air

Love, love, and love so more
Hope as always
Through faith, thy door

A better way, half past the stars
No weary woes
Neither near nor far

God is knocking
Her name is love
His path is freedom
Surest truth above
