By Christine Malcolm
Chosen to be humble servants
Many are the burdens we must bear
Guardians of the wondrous truths
A sovereign God has placed within our care
To groom for service willing minds
To face with courage all that come their way
Entrusted with the tools of faith
A worthy generation of their day.
Soon we’ll pass to other hands
The future of hope for those who are to come
And challenge all to greater things
While holding high the torch we pass along
From seeds we sow may knowledge grow
To be instilled with love for all mankind
As we near our journeys end
May this be the legacy we leave behind.
By Christine Malcolm
Spreading mighty wings
Into the sky you go
Soaring higher still
The greater heights to know.
Ultimate joy of freedom
At its very best
Against the sky a graceful silhouette.
At one with time and space
Created thus to be
Unequaled in your realm
You reign majestically.
Escaping bounds of earth
Buoyed by the current flow
Ascending mountain peaks
Where only eagles dare to go.
Christine Malcolm is an avid poet who lives in China Grove.
