Words Of A Born Again Man
When I began to be born again
I no longer saw with the eyes of man
I began to see with spiritual eyes
I began to hear with a spiritual ear
My tongue formed words that my 'father' taught
As he filled my mind with his spiritual thoughts.
Ageless and ancient at once I became.
The 'Lord' calls me by a different name
Transfigured by 'Him' and his to keep
No shepherd has taken better care of his sheep.
Shall I tell you what my spirit eyes see
What lies beyond; what soon shall be
I must tell you with my spiritual tongue that my father taught
While he filled my mind with his spiritual thoughts
Speaking in tongues that none can hear save he who has a spiritual ear
I will spill the secret in a single breath, few though it be who pass this test
What lies beyond and soon shall be
Persist in Genesis 1, 2, and 3
Hear , think and speak oh spirit filled man
For now you know what no one else can.
A parable, another clue oh born again man I give to you
Six days have I labored and labor to write
What you now read so passes six nights
And now so that you do not sin, the spirit speaks lay down your pen
And take to you the Sabbath's rest, while men strive hard to pass this test.
The spirit speaks, a promise makes
That in the morning when I wake
Restored, renewed, reborn I'll take
My pen in hand and strive to make the work I had begun to make.
A work in progress, soon to be a part of all eternity
For times and times and times
