UP AHEAD (poetry)

February 5, 2021

 Wisdom of the Holy One
 Maker of heaven and earth
 His thoughts are high above our own
 And He can see our worth

 He made us in His image, yes
 To be His family
 To know Him in all spirit and truth
 To open our eyes to see

 The evil of the world came forth
 To steal what God had made
 He tricked us in the garden
 But God knew just how to save

 The end from the beginning
 Is how our God does see
 Even though He knows our faults
 He sees what we can be

 He sent His son to show His love
 To legally set us free
 His blood upon the alter seat
 Perfect sacrifice was He

 Such are the wondrous ways of God
 There’s so much more to know
 As we look into His Word
 And seek His truth to grow

 To be in Him and Him in us
 A temple for the Lord
 Can’t wrap our minds around it
 Just have to trust His word

 Once we come of age in life
 All of us have sinned
 It made inside our hearts go dark
 So we need to be born again

 When we accept what Jesus did
 He makes in us all things new
 Our heart it changes deep inside
 Then His Spirit can dwell in you

 Then oh the journey we can have
 As our Father grows us up
 He loves to reveal the secret things
 And to joyfully fill our cup

 He will also teach us to be
 A warrior in the earth
 Overcoming darkness
 That’s fought us from our birth
 Then one day we all will rest
 In heaven we will be
 Our Father is a Creator
 What beauty we will see

 We each have a destiny
 That in His heart conceived
 Nothing will make us happier
 Than to be what we were made to be

 So now we must anticipate
 Our eyes kept up ahead
 As this age comes to an end
 And Jesus will crush Satan’s head
