Treasure Island

Obed Akuma

(1981 / Nyamira, Kenya)

Have You Ever ……?

Have you ever seen a street of gold?
Have you ever seen a tree that produces a variety of fruits?
Have you ever seen a lion and child playing?
Have you ever seen a serpent playing with a man?
Have you ever used with wings?
Have you ever thought how you will look like in heaven?
With a white robe and glittering crown on your head

Have you ever walked with God, nay with Jesus?
Have you ever been served by an angel?
Have you ever dined with God?
Have you ever slept in God’s bosom?
Heaven is the place
All these to experience

Have you ever longed to talk to Adam?
Have you ever longed to hug Moses and congratulate him for his leadership?
Have you ever felt like talking to David and listen to his favorite psalm?
Have you ever thought of walking with God?
Have you ever thought of sharing a joke with the King of the Universe?
Have you ever experienced pure joy?
Have you ever seen a crystal clear river?
Heaven is the place
All these to enjoy

Have you ever seen the Glory of Jesus?
Have you ever seen Jesus smile?
Have you ever been touched by God?
Have you ever seen the throne of God?
Have you ever worshipped Jesus at His feet?
Heaven is the place
All sorrows to escape

Have you ever……?

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
