Saint's Face

From Blog09

Child of wildest grace  
Clean-china shine of face  
Sign of Deity's design  
And permeated Presence  
Glow of altar coals  
Falls free on all  
About, though some doubt

Those who look to him are radiant,
and their faces shall never be ashamed.

--Psalm 34:5, ESV

Note: When writing this poem, I wasn't thinking of a particular person, but of the saints I've known.
