Resources for Lent: Poem

Resources for Lent: Poem


Today has been broken,
yesterdays hope is gone,
words of atonement left unspoken,
decency neglected too long.

Tears can’t change the past,
pride won’t heal the wound,
false promises don’t last,
patience came, then left too soon.

There’s a time to be humble,
the time is clear,
tomorrow need not crumble,
nor hope give way to fear.

As pain and regret fade away,
and injustice is uncovered, then know,
man may have corrupted yesterday,
but grace can save tomorrow.
