POEM: This Grace (Disgraced)


Written By Jacelyn Chia, Singapore
Edited By Reuben Teo

When sermons start to sound like soothing lullabies,
When my mind starts to slip away under distraction’s cries,
When the world outside drowns out your loving chastise
My heart from the true God flies.

When the exams, the friends, the paper chase
Blind me from the running of Your race,
Now I’m growing, changing, turning into
Something I was never, ever, meant to come to.

But fearing for what I might find, I try to run and hide.
Still, nothing holds Your grace from me
Nothing stops Your love
I want to run, yet I know you’d give chase
So I kneel before You in disgrace.

But though I broke Your heart a million times,
Though I scorned Your love in the bitter nights,
You lifted me, You raised me high,
Then You embraced me, oh so tight.

I came before Your throne disgraced,
But you told me to keep on running the race.
So now, in Your name I pray,
Help me never to forget Your grace.
