I have mostly written devotional/expository articles before, but I have more recently tried my hand at a few bits of poetry so I welcome feedback! Thank you!
His Death, My Life
I am but weak, and easily
The tempter steals on me;
He hates my safety in the Lord,
He hates my liberty.
And I have thoughts I would not have,
They frighten, they appal;
I turn to look within myself
But this does God forestall –
For God upholds me in His love,
He will not let me fall.
O Lord, where were You in that hour?
I sorely needed You!
Now I am safe, I have reprieve,
But danger comes anew.
I am no master in this fight –
I cannot make it through!
“But I have chosen you, Beloved,
And I have prayed for you,
And I will never lose My grip
For I alone am True.”
“Once I met darkness on the cross,
And sin was laid on Me;
There was no one to plead My cause,
No one to set Me free.
But I have vanquished all that load,
‘Tis gone – eternally!”
“And if I choose you, who shall dare
To crush your liberty?
For you shall live, and live indeed,
For you are found in Me.
And I will have you where I am
With Me, eternally!”
“And if it seems, in that dark hour,
That you are left alone,
Yet I am with you, O Beloved,
And with you I have gone
To meet the tempter in his craft,
To see the battle won.”
“So trust in Me, O My Beloved,
For I alone am True.
For you I bled, for you I died,
And I will see you through.”
