life, liberty & the law

I sat in the halls of Justice, where Freedom once did ring – I heard there deadly silence, where patriots once did sing.

I sat in the halls of Justice, and listened for the Truth – “the law is dead”, I heard instead, “society is the proof”.

I walked the halls of Justice, where once the Law prevailed – tempered by time, yet still intact, her honor unassailed.

I walked the halls of Justice, beheld tears in Mercy’s eyes – how she did weep for her dead friend!  “who dares the Law despise?”

I sat in the halls of Justice, where once Liberty lived secure – but only while the Law was king, could Liberty’s reign endure.

I walked the halls of Justice, seeking something yet alive – for if Freedom is to ring again, the Law, she must survive.

Yes, those who would destroy the Law or bend her to their need – remove the foundation our fathers built, our country’s faith and creed.

for if the Law cannot hold one, then she cannot hold all – then Liberty, Justice, Mercy – are surely doomed to fall.

I sat in the halls of Justice, and heard Freedom’s  faint refrain – “the law yet lives in spite of man, the Truth she will sustain.”

“The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul.  The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple.  The precepts of the Lord are right, giving joy to the heart.  The commands of the Lord are radiant, giving light to the eyes.”(Psalm 19:7-8)

“Oh, how I love Your law!  I meditate on it all day long.” (Psalm 119:97)

“Streams of tears flow from my eyes, for Your law is not obeyed.” (Psalm 119:136)

“So then, the law is holy, and the commandment is holy, righteous and good.” (Romans 7:12)

sincerely,     Grace Day
