From the Very Start – Christopher Meredith

I fear not,

     as Jesus Christ has shown,

the first steps are mine,

    and mine alone.


Starting right now,

     on the footpath to heaven,

know you must forgive,

     to be forgiven.


It is time to let go,

     to release that grudge,

wipe the slate clean,

     no mark and no smudge.


Step back, step away,

     from that bad behavior.

Love God, love yourself,

     and too love your neighbor,


Give to the Lord.

     Give of your heart.

For God has loved you

     from the very start.
