When Righteousness and Justice Kiss (A Meditation on Psalm 85:10-11)

when Righteousness
and Justice
kiss,

how sweet the embrace.

how gentle the caress.

how lovely the moment
when we,
who call ourselves “righteous”
realize that we need justice,
and those who seek justice
realize that we need to be made right.

when Righteousness
and Justice
kiss,

Faithfulness will spring forth,
fresh from new-watered ground,
and will stand tall,

proud,

alive,

and we will know,
in that kiss,
the sum total of Love

and the awe-inspiring effects
of Grace.
