Yes, the first phrase of this UPLift poem was spoken earlier today half a world away.
LOOK UPON THE WORLD
by J. Randal Matheny
Look upon the world with eyes
Of love, take pity on the poor,
The impoverished rich; go hear the cries
Of the faint and needy at your door,
The lonely soul in laughter’s disguise.
Where justice fails and wars are stirred,
The world awaits your saving word.
Here’s the link to the sermon given earlier today. I borrowed the title for the poem. The development of the poem from there is my own.
I know it’s unusual for me to send out two UPLift poems in as many days, but this one wouldn’t wait.
