Answer The Call

by vincent lyons  
8/25/2010 / Poetry

High on a cliff overlooking the ocean
Watching the waves breaking hard on the shore,
Awed by the sound of its thundering motion,
Unceasing tumult and deafening roar--
Drowns not the whisper that speaks to my soul.

Played out in nature a drama before me;
I, an observer just watching it all;
Groaning creation's the theme of the story,
Nature in turmoil because of the fall--
Speaks to my spirit a voice 'still and small'.

Nations are angry just like the billows,
Raging and roaring and rushing in vain--
Picture the Saviour asleep on His pillow,
Treating their threatening with utter disdain--
Word of His mouth will uncover their shame.

Not for amusement God gives inspiration,
No empty whimsy that pleases the mind;
Nature abounds to confirm revelation,
Opens the eyes of the ones born blind--
Oceans of truth a true seeker can find.

Whispers we hear in the world's mad commotion
Easily drown in the sea of despair--
World, flesh and devil, the carnal man's portion
Take your heart captive, your soul they ensnare;
Flee their enticing!! Not a moment to spare!

High on a cross overlooking the nations
One paid a price--God's redemption for all--
Cursed on a tree, breaks the curse on creation,
God's love and justice reverses the fall--
Drown not the whisper but answer the call.

I am a Christian who belongs to a home church in Sydney, Australia. I am Irish by birth and desire to further the gospel of Christ by my life and my poetry.
