Treasure Island

Obed Akuma

(1981 / Nyamira, Kenya)


Excellent! All is excellent
Excellent internally, excellent eternally
Excellent majesty,
Majesty in excellence
Majesty in eternity
The eternity of righteousness
In eternal majesty

The purchase on the cross was made
For you and I to be made
The glory of His purchase
In excellence to live
Eternity to partake
His majesty to receive
In eternal majesty

You and I to Him to live
You and I in Him to stay
To dwell at His Love
And maintain His Integrity
The sin we ought to leave
And run to His majesty
For then we dwell in eternal majesty

His work us to perform
The harvest belongs to Him
No matter cumbersome it may seem
Forward we must swim
Though the current may seem
Us to overwhelm
His power nothing can overwhelm
Thus we win, thus we live in eternal majesty

My sisters you are where?
And are you aware?
None but you He is looking for?
To the fold to take you there
That in His presence you may be there
And His glory to share
In eternal majesty

My brothers are you listening?
An ear lend to His calling
That straight path you are traveling
Never be found wanting
Instead be always beholding
His image as you’ll be clinging
To His righteousness or else nothing
Can cleanse you in eternal majesty

For Him all of us were made
In Him all of us are made
And for Him we’ll be made
Our life let us make
After His own similitude
And our character to build
For then we’ll live in eternal majesty

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
