Donal Mahoney- A Poem

Another Sinner's Prayer

Long ago Christ bled from every pore, 
died on the cross, rose for all, 
too few of whom now seem to care.

He died for what I'm doing now
and for what I've done before 
and for what I'll do again unless

I drown in a flood of grace,
a flood more terrifying than 
the one that Noah faced

from the safety of his ark. 
I do believe--but I don't behave.
I need to drown in a flood of grace.

Donal Mahoney lives in St. Louis, Missouri.
