Thank you Charlotte & Ginger for hosting Spiritual Sundays. Go here to read other great Sunday posts.

Who can stand in evil's face

And help mankind run its race?

His name is GRACE.

Who reigns in majesty

Yet stoops to hear the human plea?

His name is HUMILITY.

Who helps the struggling soul to cope

Holds the anchor, steadies the rope?

His name if HOPE.

Who gives us daily breath

Leads us through chilling death?

His name is FAITH.

Who reigns supreme above?

Who has power we know not of?

EMMANUEL! His name is LOVE.

This poem was written by my husbands neice by marriage -- Beverly A. Joyce in 1999
