Once fog has lifted clear away,

Thus revealing a sunny day.

Fog 0f sin, can we not see?

What Jesus did for you, for me?



He took it all upon Himself,

Leaving the comfort of that shelf,

Of joy of peace, bright realms above!

Left it all for men, it is called love!



Did He have to leave home, heaven?  No!

Did God, over all, command go?

His comfort secure as all can see.

Did he not leave all just for me?



And you?  And no answers can remain,

Tell me, who on earth could then disdain

The desire for joy evermore?

To remain in heavens’  blissful shore!



Can any then imagine this,

Leaving all, yes, heavenly bliss?

To suffer with sinful people below,

Who really cannot tell which way to go!



Loving the sin they are living in!

Cannot see clearly to live within,

Realms of peace and joy that Christ shows!

That we can have as river flows.



Joy supreme can anyone know?

Christ makes promise to us below!

“Take up your cross and follow me!”

To know real joy everlastingly!



the Sam 10.01.12
