Pondering my graceless state – and my Champion’s intervention.

Bruised and broken

Heavy fall

Marks all over me

Traumatised, paralysed

Scars for all to see

Whole being is affected

Devil’s dye injected

Colours thought & deed

Hopeless and helpless

Future bleak as hell

Evil has its day

Casts its mighty spell


But Champion descends

wrapped in servant’s form

clashes with the foe

calms the raging storm

Soaks up all the venom

Carries all my pain

Heals me on the inside

Breathes new life again

In His Kingly favour

I have been restored

Champion is my Saviour

Champion is my LORD
