Who Is This?
. Who is this Who walks . And calls So men . Leave all And follow . A voice Which speaks . The Word ? .
Wonderful and Beyond
One thing after another points to what is wonderful . And beyond the realm of the everyday . It may be a sunrise or vision so beautiful It may be beyond what any can say It may be the silence or the words so truthful They disciple your heart-ache on the spiritual way.
As study Amazes the mind So the disciple Devotes hours To the way Of practising prayer The direct Contemplation of God Who writes On our souls Better words Of wonder Of love And of joy.
Leave All nets And follow The one Who will Lead you To an eternal Tomorrow.
Following, because where the Lord is the servant must be too - Through celebration, rough rides, crucifixion - Acclamation, denial, betrayal - Always to follow, serving one greater than life.
