THE LOVE FEAST
I saw the Sun rise from the South
And I knew something was fishy
He winked and beckoned at me
And that confirmed my fears.
Where did you sleep last night
And where did you keep your fright?
Why did you rise from the South
With promise for a cool day?
‘I was awake all through the night
Rejoicing as a butterfly
And surprising as it may sound to thee
No scorching today shall be’
What makes you smile today?
What makes your coming unusual?
Whatever made you rejoice?
What have you to say to this?
At this he glowed and warmly said
‘Prepare your heart my young friend
For time soon will come
When those who are ready will be called
To join the train that leads to Heaven.
‘’T’is a place of eternal rest
Where I need not be
For god’s glory shines in the land
Through the face of Him who owns the city.
‘So I smiled so graciously
For this I know with surety
That when in God’s glory you forever rest
I will be back to where I’m from’
