The Cold Rain

The Cold Rain

The cold rain upon me falls
Drops battering my body like angry mauls
Motionless feet drenched in shallow water
Life has positioned me as the drowning squatter

Tired is my journey in a lifeless ocean
Lord baptize my being with Calvary’s potion
Stir the winds and dry my bones
Shining sun remove the evil, around me sewn

Calm the waters for tomorrow’s passage
Embolden my body with a soldier’s carriage
Resurrect the life that has been taken
Let all men know that a soul cannot be forsaken.

Thank you,
Joseph Pede
