a Poem or something like it.   Leave a comment

John 9 verse 39 Jesus said, “For judgment I have come into this world, so that the blind will see and those who see will become blind.”

Spiritual sight is a gift so sublime,
Something that is a feast for the heart.
In seeing Jesus, judgement is gone,
In seeing the Son new liberty comes.
Faith comes by seeing and seeing
By His Word.

Oh to see Christ in divine majesty!
To have a grand vision of the God who is there,
Will purify the heart and cut sin at the root.
The more that the heart makes of its maker,
The wider awake and alert it will be.

What meagre things we delight in
When heaven is set before us, shall we not seek,
the glory of God, and be freed from the sin that so drags us down.
What pleasures the light brings, what confusion the darkness.
To see the world as God sees it, would be to take care
Of what He delights in, in His name everywhere.

No judgement is there, in coming to Christ,
Sin finds its doom in Calvary and sets its prisoner free.
Tis folly to follow after vanity fair, when
Christ in His glory is set so before us, we
Must be blind to prefer the pleasures of sin.
Judgement must come but before then,
Come to life in the Son!
