A Little More Verse Theological

7 July 2011

Means of Grace

Dance, song, and shouts of joy; the foolishness of preaching;

Sunrises, moonstones, and rainbows; the pleasing stretch of reaching

Across a Sabbath table laden with a feast.

Trumpets and Purim, Christmas and Easter—

the joy of the festival board

Where we eat and we drink and are merry indeed,

the better to fear the Lord.

‘Tis barely begun, this work of naming unnumbered

hundreds of graces;

But may God bless our task, and sharpen our eyes,

and with excellent food stuff our faces!
