The Poetry of John Syrmis
Maleny Queensland Australia

THE RHYME OF REBIRTH
WHEN ONE UNDERSTANDS
THE POETRY OF POWER
ANTHEM
WITH GOD ON OUR SIDE
THE DREAM CREATION
OF WHAT MEANS SO MUCH
TO SING THE SAME SIMPLE SONG
ON A TUESDAY AFTERNOON
IN THE COUNTRY OR THE TOWN
WITH GOD ON OUR SIDE

It’s a good time for reason , a right time to care
it’s a fine time for freedom , to give and to share
it’s the clear path to reckon , the time and the tide
it’s a sure shot for living
with God on our side

It’s an echo eternal in resonance to hear
it’s the light of completion and a world free of fear
it’s heaven to hold to , to give and receive
it’s mercy and justice , the conception conceived

It’s a high hope for heaven , to rise and redeem
it’s the promise for promise , the true sight and scene
it’s word and it’s wisdom , the time and the place
it’s one moment eternal , the light in each face

It’s truth in the telling , the last thought to remain
it’s forever to find out , to sing it the same
it’s giving for glory , the lesson to learn
it’s beauty and brotherhood , the balance returned

It’s love in the lifeline , the song of the soul
it’s the prayer that is answered to tell and be told
it’s the clear path to reckon , the time and the tide
it’s a sure shot for living
with God on our side .
