AT ONE WITH CHRIST

In that everlasting Kingdom

What will happen?  I do not know!

I am no prophet just a poet,

But that is where I want to go!

.

.

Great intentions prospects aiming

Cannot quite make it on my own!

But it is my destination

Got to make it to God’s throne!

.

.

Who can get there that vast haven?

David, Jacob, Abraham?

Billy Sunday?  Billy Graham?

Or my father?  Or old Sam?

.

.

Sorry buddy, all unworthy!

“All have sinned and all fall short,”

If you would scrap the devils arrows

Have to build yourself a fort!

.

.

All those saints who have gone before us

Not excluding Samson, too (*)

Had a fort, their faith increasing

Without it one is faithless crew!

.

.

Faithless?  Yes!  For without Jesus

Without faith in Christ you are dead!

Be sure of it, if not in heaven

May as well have stayed in bed!

.

.

That rugged cross that is where Christ took them,

All my sins and yours!  Believe

On Jesus Christ’s propitiation

Eternal Life you will receive!

.

.

Believing now I do receive it!

Heaven is my eternal home,

Unworthy?  Yes!  Confess, receive Him!

He is ready to atone! (**)

(*) Ready Hebrew 11

(**) Atone – make two as one

NOTHING HERE TO FEAR

I reject this feeling in Jesus’ name!

This insecurity!

Though born in my heart or Hell itself

It is quite the same to me!

.

.

It was the devil himself that put it there

Though I did say, “Get thee behind…”

The feeling persists, I know there is relief

Somehow through Christ I will find!

.

.

I love Him in spite of whatever may come!

This is my answer I know!

By faith I receive His relief so kind

In spite of bad feelings that grow.

.

.

So why do I fear?  He loves me I know!

Nothing can come near to foil

The sweet liberty that is ours from above,

He gives nothing that will spoil!

.

.

Nothing that can be destroyed by storm

Nor dart from Satan’s throng

My faith is in Christ!  I know He will keep

And never leave me alone!

.

.

So come what may whatever betide

I know He is always near!

And whether it is pain and suffering

I have nothing here to fear!
