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.
