A Purpose 1-15-15


What eye would have a purpose -
if rainbows had no hue,
if sunsets had no colors,
if skies were void of blue?

What ear would have a purpose -
if lips, inaudible,
if harmony was absent sound,
if nature, all, was still?

What nose would have a purpose -
if flowers had no scent,
if perfumes had no fragrance,
if spring was no event?

What tongue would have a purpose -
if salt had ne'er a taste,
if thoughts were but a vapor,
if words just went to waste?

What mind would have a purpose -
if argumentative,
if self-absorbed in ignorance,
if truth was 'relative'?

What heart would have a purpose -
if love, it could not feel,
if it was hard as granite stone,
if it could never heal?

What life would have a purpose -
without salvation's tree,
without the birth of Jesus Christ,
without the Trinity?

What soul would have a purpose -
if grace had not been free,
if faithfulness had not been lived,
if saved, we couldn't be?
