“When I Find Goodness”, a worship poem from L.Willows


When I find goodness

it leaps near like joy.

Shared like a flower

with budding forth hope

between times that shadow

or cause doubt to fall.

There in the midst of

a length that becomes tall

here comes a blossom,

a joy from somewhere;

hidden from view mine,

hidden from time;

life not yet given,

hope not yet seen

but in the emergence

of sweet limping scent-

I feel holy prompt of

God’s glorious advent.

Philippians 4:8
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Ephesians 2:10
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
