More Than Gold

A Glimmer of Grace:

Kyrielles of Blessings' Bells


He welcomes me to an empty chair,

As wings unseen glide with us there.

My drought is drenched with simple prayer.

A glimmer of grace is greater than gold.


Fierce fury flies, and guilt departs,

Along with the accuser’s darts,

I’m rescued by the Prince of hearts.

A glimmer of grace is greater than gold.


The angels whisper, “Free at last.”

My winter’s tale has lost its blast,

For love divine is unsurpassed.

A glimmer of grace is greater than gold.


His mercy leaves no room for doubt.

My darkest memories, cast out.

Lord, make me evermore devout.

A glimmer of grace is greater than gold.


With thankful heart, no longer torn,

I rise to meet the purest morn.

Clothed in His light, may truth adorn.

A glimmer of grace is greater than gold.

  1. Oh, that glimmer of grace is Everything! Through it everything is possible.

  2. That's an impressive prompt list which you've done very well with. Wow.
