He Saves

The Daily Post has again given a word prompt that I have written a poem about. I started this one months ago, but never finished it — until today’s word prompt prompted me to. πŸ™‚ I call this one, “He Saves”.

The world is a vast ocean – seems never ending
In it I am going under and drowning – sinning
He reaches into the waves and grabs – my hand
He is the stable Rock upon which I can – stand

This world is a hot, barren desert – we thirst
Only the Living Water can quench – put Him first
Worldly ways are sea water – don’t satisfy
It’ll slowly kill; shed the salt – unto Him cry, cry, cry

Christ is the Way in the wilderness of Earth – an oasis
Drink in the ways of the Water – sheer bliss
Immerse in the water, let the Holy Spirit in – baptize
True happiness is found here – we realize

He is the One, He is the Light who illuminates – the way
The Son rose, ending the dark night – and brought the day
When sin threatened to defeat us – send us to eternal graves
He overcame death and sin for our sakes – He saves
