The gospel of Christ: I am not ashamed.
When I look at my wayward life
What I fail at what I have aimed,
Where I fell short which I proclaimed;
The gospel of Christ is the Lord’s power.
I am blessed with a faithful wife,
A garden with herbs and flowers –
How brief is each day and hour.
The righteous shall live by faith, in you. And me?
When life batters, cuts like a knife,
What I assume or not foresee,
Fill me with hope—my longing plea.
- After Romans 1:16, 17
