January 1987


to Cathy


there, but for the grace of God

walks death

the victor

but for the grace of God

a miracle

through the grace of God

brought you to a place

you would not have been

to save a life


you saved a life!


by grace of God

you saved a life!


if you could be an angel

you could be no better

for already you are best

as our Father’s blessed child

a servant on the road

to a Father’s open arms


I thank God that you are you

for only you could do

what He has called you to


To Cathy, a good friend who saved

a friend from suicide; by grace of God!
