A World like This
by our daughter Elly
I pulled up the anchor and tossed the rope,
Wind launched the ship forward and I set sail.
Adventure and safety for I did hope,
When suddenly a storm was on my tail.
The thunder crashed as loud as a gunshot.
Losing control and gaining frustration,
I fight against the wind all on my own
Feeling like I fought against a nation.
Finally realizing I was a fraud,
I wanted to live my life for God.
Faithfully, for dry land, I sent a dove
And I hoped once again to find God’s love.
To God I surrendered the ship’s great wheel
And realized that the wind was leading me.
Soon humbled by this, to God I did kneel
And trusted him to save me from the sea.
I finally arrived at heaven’s shores,
God had saved me from my own damnation.
It is over now, my personal wars,
In Him He grants me perfect salvation.
Christ has led me out of the great unknown,
My heart is overwhelmed with perfect bliss.
He’s waiting for me on His golden throne,
I would die to live in a world like this.
