At His Feet - Poem by Paul Sebastian

Arriving at house of Simon the Pharisee
Braved into midst of seated Pharisees
A sinful woman fell at the feet of Jesus
Weeping, pouring copious tears
Over the Master’s feet
Mercy did she plead
Drying His feet with her hair
Oblivious to elders’ anger-stare
As she covered His feet with kisses
Anointed them with oil that’s precious
Complained did the Pharisee of her act
For she’s a well-known sin-wreck
Jesus questioned their reasoning
Pointed their judgmental thinking

Jesus said, moved by compassion:
‘Your sins are forgiven
Your faith has saved you; go in peace’
At His feet she found solace

Our hearts are restless
Living seem purposeless
Ignorance gives temporary bliss
Pride blinds us of what we miss
Cares of world forfeit real peace
Real peace rests in Prince of Peace

If we abide in His love, His word, keep
Christ offers His own joy to make ours complete
Let’s keep faith in His promises
Let’s turn away from sin offenses
Return, reconcile at His feet
To live in peace, our joy complete

Great rejoicing await in heaven
Over one saved and forgiven
Get up, let’s return to the Father
For at the door, is our Waiting Father!
To love-embrace, kisses to adorn
Over a son, once lost but now found!

    In the season of lent, let us abdicate ourselves at the feet of the Lord, repenting over our our sins like the 'fallen woman'! A life of complete surrender before the will of God assures for us our share of heavenly bliss! A poem for spiritual rejuvenation! Enjoyed! (Report) Reply
