The Second Book of Inspirational Poetry byIrene Beales

A thick fog is covering the City
And there's a need to switch on the lights,
Great care to be taken when driving,
Especially when duty calls out in the night.
As I walked to post a letter -
The trees looked like ghosts,
The fog covered their real beauty and splendour,
And I could so easily have bumped into a post.
How this fog has brought to memory -
Way back many years ago,
When my life was shrouded in a fog
Of worldly things - before my Saviour I came to know.
Then one day when singing a closing hymn -
The Holy Spirit made it all so bright,
The fog cleared and thro it
Was revealed - such spiritual light.
Now I could see so clearly - Why
That cruel death on the Cross,
'Twas the culmination of Gods wonderful plan -
A living sacrifice - the only hope - between God and man.
Oh the joy when the fog of ignorance lifts
And the sun of understanding shines thro.
Eternal life with Jesus,
There's new beauty - even the grass is greener too.
Now day by day - the sun always shines
Even thro the densest fog,
Prayer and Praise and Thanksgiving
Clears the way - as I follow His footsteps - in the sod.
