Keepers of a Legacy


The eternal legacy it is
That covers infinite epochs
To them that He loves
To keep of a legacy

A legacy that endures
A legacy that lasts
The legacy of righteousness
The eternal legacy

A legacy to live by this is
A legacy to walk in it is
A legacy that manifests
In the keepers of the legacy

A legacy so precious
Than any gem on earth is
A legacy that transposes
The keepers of a legacy

Transposes them to righteousness
Better them the legacy makes
Suitable to span the eternal epochs
That He created for the keepers of the legacy

Not to be bought by rubies or dollars
Attained not by natural acts
Imparted not by ones whishes
In the keepers of the legacy

A legacy freely given that frees
A legacy dearly purchased for His purposes
By His life at the cross
To buy the keepers of the legacy

A keeper of the legacy you is
If your life resurrected is
By accepting the cross
Forever to keep the legacy

The legacy of sinlessness
That of pure joy is
The legacy that glorifies
The keepers of the legacy

poet Li Po

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
