Prophetic Words

The second excerpt from a novel in verse – A Cup of Cold Water – Memoir of a Teenage Mother 

Wednesdays – education class 
at the salon
in at 10:00 a.m. out at 10:00 p.m.
or later

Off to pick up a sleeping child
then head home
you always awakened

Let’s sing, mom…
we did

“Ohhhhhh, victory in Jesus”
you sang       loud

“My savior forever”
you sang       off key

“He sought me and He bought me
with his redeeming blood.”
you sang       with heart

“He loved me ere I knew him”
you sang        with conviction

“and all my love is due him”
you sang         with sweetness

“He PUNCHED me to victoryeeeeeeee
beneath the cleansing flood.”
you sang         with all your might

I smiled….and did my best
not to laugh

at prophetic words

Victory in Jesus

  1. Unforgettable moments such as those contain the meaning of life. The mis-worded lyrics and the off-key strains of a child are like the soft glow of a rising sun, full with the promise of a radiant day. I would like to read the entire book.
