I値l tell of a song that I heard once
A song to make prison walls fall
I値l hum you the melody gladly
And tell you of what I recall

I値l tell of a man in a prison
The darkest and deepest foul place
He sat in the stench bruised and battered
Shrouded with shame and disgrace

I値l tell of a night and the stillness
And into the silence a song
He sang of his precious redeemer
His shepherd so gentle and strong

I値l tell of the longing that stirred me
A light in that dark place blazed bright
I glimpsed unseen worlds, things eternal
And I who was blind gained my sight

I値l tell of the prison walls crumbling
Of chains that were severed apart
But whilst in the midst of the maelstrom
A peace settled over my heart

I値l tell why I stayed, did no running
No walls and no chains kept me bound
The words of his song had ensnared me
A treasure eternal I壇 found

I値l tell of a vision so glorious
A kingdom that outlasts them all
A song that the saints will be singing
Of the King before whom all men fall

What a beautiful song in the night. It was quite stirring and peaceful at the same time.

This poem captured my heart.

Assuredly, a beautiful song disguised as poetry.

Beautiful. Love the perspective, and done as a poem! Original, seamless, and unexpected. Well done!

The power of Jesus' love is apparent even in dark prison cells. This poem was creatively and beautifully executed.

I love your "song." I'll sing it with you.

This is absolutely beautiful. Although I'm tone deaf and not very musical, when I read your poem it came out as a song. No matter how hard I tried to just read my brain said, no you must sing it and that has never happened to me before.
