Chasing

© Bob Barra, 7-3-07

Running, panting, stumbling about,
Almost out of breath;
Fighting, fearing, in my doubt,
To the brink of death;
He keeps coming after me,
Despite my resistance;
I donít want Him; canít He see?
I love my deadly distance;

His chasing meís relentless,
Iíve nowhere to go;
I lie awake so sleepless;
This night just seems to know;

"What do You want with me?
Wonít You leave me alone?!
Iím no good, canít You see;
My sin infests my bones!"

I run and hide and run again
From this Hound of Heaven;
Does He want me, with my sin;
Can I be forgiven?
I run again until I drop;
I think Iíve given up;
I reach out up to God,
And I take His cup;

"I thank You, Lord, for chasing me,
Until Iím out of breath;
You alone have set me free,
And saved me from the Death;
Many years have come and gone,
My breathís still lost, but in awe;
To You alone Iíve withdrawn,
For my heart has thawed;"

At last this heart of mine is quiet
In this Plan not of my making;
I, by grace, fight the good fight;
Now itís souls Iím chasing.




*Just reminiscing the chase.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
