Save me, O God,
for the waters are come unto my soul.
Psalm 69:1 kjv
Lord Jesus, whence comes
My body, soul & humankind’s spirit?
Has it been with us all along,
Whence in the beginning, You did it?
Is there no longer any significance for this humanizing agent?
No room, in century twenty-one, for something so very basic?
Though crafted by Your perfect planning
Must we now simply, and finally . . . erase it??
Must we now violate this last fundamental too?
Dehumanizing not only our bodies, psyche & sex
But all that our very soul & spirit ought to do?
—Too addicted to the screens on our “living room” walls
As we tweet to death the priceless minutes and hours
And fade away like un-watered flowers;
—Must the sum total of our life’s efforts
Into a flaming oblivion of Hell, now abort?
Oh, please help me, Lord I pray,
Not to throw my soul’s treasures away
—Nor scratch my soul from Your Book of Life
For which You have paid so high a price
Upon Mt. Calvary.
But snatch my soul from the jaws of death
That I may live with You
In that new Paradise, that is not yet;
And please do . . . carry me
I go to prepare a place for you.
And . . . I will come again and receive you to Myself;
that where I am, there you may be also.
. Jesus Christ -- John 14:2-3
