ODE TO A FRIEND
[LIVING FOR OUR FIRST LOVE, the LORD JESUS CHRIST, the WORD become flesh -
(as in, the forever-spoken Word, day and night speaking everywhere throughout all of the cosmos from the beginning on; then becoming flesh; and now a life-giving Spirit) - see Psalm 19:4, John 1:1 & 1 Corinthians 15:45]
More than all divine dimensions,
Heaven's mansions skies and trees.
More than all of this earth's offerings,
Even bonds of family.
More than chance to win a million,
And own mansions on the hills;
More than pleasures, gifts, and power,
Jesus Christ: He truly thrills.
Thank you, Lord, You are our Healer!
Thank you, oh our Great Provider!
Victories sure forevermore,
Are in You whom we adore!
Our spirits know, while in this place:
To stay the course, His call is sure;
'Get up oh souls', more work awaits,
There's more to do on this trip we take!
