Sonnet: By His Stripes!

Poem By Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

Oh, let the Hand of God well strike the chord,
Restoring harmony back in my life;
The peace of mind and heart, bestow me Lord;
Deliver me from every vice and strife!

So many years have rolled by very fast;
My life was filled by struggles of all types;
Let me forget the blunders of the past;
Forgive my every sin made, by Your Stripes!

Now triumph smiles again, giving me joy;
My labor hard has paid off finally;
Oh, help me breathe with ease and life enjoy;
Do add me to Your righteous souls’ tally!

’Tis time I gave more time for my soul’s care;
If not for You, my life would have been bare!

the Lord certainly gives comfort for those in need what a Blessing you have opened your arms while others still toil flies buzzing about their ears
