A nomad through hot desert sand
-Opressed by scorching sun
Man trudges through this arid land
-Of barrenness - undone.

As wanting as a pauper's purse
-To poverty he's joined
Inheritance but Adam's curse
-His Paradise purloined.

Seductive voices sing his name
-feign fill bleak emptiness
Then quick abandon as they came
-Sore soul left in distress.

Drink deep the living water - free
-A reservoir ne'er dry
Eternal springs - come taste and see
-His well doth satisfy!

A bounty rich worth more than gold
-Abounds - true - overflows
Redemption wrought from days of old
-So freely He bestows!

Abyss is filled by Him alone
-This King's own righteousness
Behold the Lamb - His shed blood's shown
-The path to blessedness!

I'm often impressed by your work, Denise. This one, especially.... I truly admire a person who freely speaks their faith. Thank you for sharing this. I apologize for not commenting more often.

Denise,
I don't know how I missed this...but I have to tell you that this is simply superb!! What a meaningful read!!!! Truly, I am impressed...it's great.

Know what? It pays to go back a few pages people!! You may find hidden treasure....or "Something for Nothing"

Wow! Thanks for the great comments! I'm so glad that you liked it! And not to change the subject, but I spend most of my time in the 'further back pages'! I find so much great stuff back there that slipped down too quickly! I'm never disappointed!

Thanks again!

Denise, though I'm not a religious person, this poem was far too good to read without commenting. A wonderful show of your faith.
