AWAKEN TO SEE HIM

“My yoke is easy, My burden light…”

Why then do I struggle for sleep at night?

Pain that resists a comfortable rest?

Too often experienced miserable test!

.

.

Miserable feeling this sleeplessness,

Tempted to wonder and doubt, I guess.

Tempted, yes, but I stay with the Rock,

He will lead to that beautiful dock!

.

.

Final dock in that Heavenly cove,

Where dwell His peace and perfect love!

Contributing to my boundless joy!

With nothing left there to ever annoy!

.

.

Battles we lose but win in the end!

Decidedly win!  With God to defend!

Sleeplessly toss but cannot you see,

The many requests, “Please pray for me!”

.

.

Considering then forthcoming peace!

Nothing can harm!  My soul finds release!

So whether I die before I awake,

Or not sleep at all my faith will not quake!

.

.

Just to see Him there, immortality!

Clothed in His brightness for all to see,

All will see Him who love His commands,

Know Him by nail prints in His hands!

.

.

I love Him and know that He loves me!

I trust Him!  Though sleepless nights I may see!

If He wills I die what better place

To awaken to see His wonderful face!
