Deliver Me From Heaven

The Rev. Canon Dr. James M. McPherson

Deliver Me From Heaven


deliver me from heaven

if it is indeed the gated

haven of the smug who’ve

earned the harp, the fluffy

cloud, the segregation

from the undeserving;

set me instead with those

who stumble hopefully

because they’ve learned

there is a gate that gladly

opens wide to any beggar’s

hopeful touch
