After A While



Do angels still hurl golden pens

To writers on the earth?

Can they still construct those

Sentences leading man to “second birth”?



Are there eyes still watching Heaven

Longing for a glimpse of Him?

Do they see the signs that tell us

Jesus Christ will come again?



Is there someone holding mercy

As a treasured goal of life?

Do the red words in the Bible

Call an end to sin and strife?



For I’ve spent a time in slumber ~

In some maze of sorrow’s pain,

Longing for the arms that held me ~

Knowing they’ll not come again.





While my senses (in slow motion)

Cannot do what I desire;

I so long for inspiration and

A heart that’s set afire.



Looking up toward His heavens

(As he told us we should do),

I see stars still in their courses and

Each day begins anew;



All the birds still sing their own song ~

While the days of war rage on;

I wonder if the verse will come ~

Or have I slept too long?



…Lifter of my broken spirit,

Touch again my weeping heart

With the workers in Your garden,

May I have some tiny part?



May I love someone who really needs a

Tender touch from You?

Bless me, Father, with some gracious call

That still, my heart and hands can do.
