What Will I Do?

What will I do with what I’ve done
when glow of moon and set of sun
recedes behind the Risen One
as Christians changed with blinks of eyes
are caught up with Him in the skies
to dance with Heavenlies on high?

I dare to take it in;
What will I do with sin

when Jesus reaches out His hand
and motions up to Beulah Land
wherein are angels in the band
still dancing round the Royal Throne
whereon does Judgment sit alone
with Open Book and those atoned
rejoicing at His feet?

How is it I’m complete?

I was not scourged, I did not bow,
I wore no thorn upon my brow
and, yet, I’m here and standing now
a sinner in the arms of Grace
on either side that holds my place
while staring at Him, at His face,
my Savior seems undone …

“What sin? I see not one!”


God bless,
Lighthouse Bob

A well written piece again Bob.  I think there is only really one judge in this world.

Joyce,

Oh, thank you sooooooo very, very much. I do appreciate your "Halleuiah" response in that this is how I imagine we'll respond when we hear "Enter in thou good and faitful servants" and, yes, I too am very pleased that this poem made you feel happy.

Big smiles and God bless,

-Bob

Oh how self confident one can be until we stand before Him.  It's hard to imagine the moment.  Crying with joy is something that's so spontaneous with me, so I'd guess I'll make a waterfall of sorrow for my sin and beyond-
belief joyfulness for His total forgiveness.
You know I loved this piece and it provoked me to contemplate that moment.  Thanks.

God bless,
  Rae

Rae,

How absolutely wonderful of you to say that my poem brought you to a place of contemplation where you could see yourself in a moment of ‘beyond-belief’ joy.  WoW! What a beautiful place for a poem to bring someone and what a wonderful compliment.

Thank you so very, very much and God bless you,

-Bob

whisperingwalt,

Thank you so very much for your kind words and, as my poem has reminded you of some of the wonderful attributes of God, Grace and Hope for the future, your pen name reminds me that in this world where we live, within its noises and confusion, God still takes the time to talk to us in the whisper.

Thank you and God bless you,

-Bob
