The Pearl - Poem by Obed Akuma

So precious the pearl
So magnificent the pearl
So expensive the pearl
So wonderful the pearl
Heaven the pearl
You the pearl

Heaven the pearl
Everything sell buy the pearl
Everything count but loss for the pearl
Trade your life for the pearl
Lose your life obtain your life in the pearl
Want everything gain the pearl
Existing for eternity the pearl
Want eternity gain the pearl

To gain the pearl
Salvation accept for the pearl
The Law obey for the pearl
His will do for the pearl
Love manifest for the pearl
Your enemy love for the pearl
Give for the pearl

Others invite to the pearl
Your friends to the pearl
Your enemies to the pearl
Open to everyone the pearl
Everyone to the pearl

You the pearl
Heaven invested in the pearl
Heavenly King came for the pearl
To search for the pearl
To buy the pearl
On the cross for the pearl
Suffering for the pearl

In you the pearl
His image the pearl
So fearfully the pearl
So wonderfully the pearl
Fashioned the pearl
Loved the pearl


You the pearl
Accept heaven the pearl
Many mansions in the pearl
Many mansions for the pearl
All magnificent for you the pearl
All precious in the pearl
And hope all to meet in the pearl

    This is the pearl of great price, faith and wisdom.Hard to believe that it comes from a grain of sand that irritates an oyster.And there are more grains of sand on earth than there are stars in heaven.So many meanings to it's depths.Wonderful.thank you for the poem. (Report) Reply
