Arise

Arise


Arise all you sleepers awake
Open your eyes for your souls sake
While the love of the world grows cold
Lord fill us with thy spirit to stand bold
While I am young but yet this world makes me feel old
You are the cornerstone of the construction
While I see many headed to destruction
Lord I stay focused on you
As you guide and pull me through
While keeping my mind free and clear
And banishing thy fear
In this evil world you relieve thy pain
And wipe away all trails of rain
I turn to you while you bring comfort and peace
For you have already defeated the beast
As you teach to watch out for others yeast
May your will be done here on earth
As we turn to you to receive new birth
While leaving the world delights
As our feet follow your light
Gliding swiftly eager to unite

    Some will wake when it is to late. This poem reflects the difficulty of today's times and the need for guidance and comfort so that we will eventually unite with Him. A wonderful spiritual write. Phyl
