Topic: Eek! (02/25/10)

TITLE: NO SUCH WORD

There is no such word in heaven,
There's no such word as Eek!
The Lord of all creation
Is warm and soft to speak.

He's mindful of our Saviour,
He's mindful of His Son,
Forever we are children
Now redemption's work is done.

We'll hear a word of welcome,
Or see a beckoning call,
In Christ the Father knows us
No there is no Eek at all.

Admittedly there should be
For all; that's you and me,
But Eek is not in heaven
Since Christ died on the tree.

For Eek denotes rejection,
Shock, horror, sin exposed,
Banished, awful separation,
Join the enemy deposed.

But The Blood speaks restoration,
If we have called Him Lord,
While angels fall in wonder,
We'll join with one accord

For He is high and mighty,
The Son now lifted up,
The Spirit broods o'er His holy ones,
Who drink Salvation's cup.

There is no Eek in heaven,
There's focus on the Son,
And 'ahhs' and 'ohhs' and 'glory!'
And 'thank You Holy One'.

I loved this poem and have to agree there shan't be need to use words like these in the heavenly after-life, good job

This was very smooth to read not mention clever.
As for eek, don't even think it should be a word on earth...I mean really, who actually says it? :)

The message I get from your lovely poem is that there are no surprises and there is no fear when we belong to Him. I like this.

What a clever application of the topic. I never thought about "eek" denoting rejection, shock, banishment, etc., but I do now. Great poem, filled with depth and beautiful truth.

You're right! There is no "Eek" in Heaven, and I couldn't even find it in the dictionary either. (*.*)! But this poetic message says it "Like It Is!" Nicely done.
