Bring Some More Unto Me! - Poem by Christian Eliab Ratnam

On an island faraway,
My soul I left to run astray.
I was stranded in a prison,
Until I was released into freedom.

Just as I thought I was free,
My joy and happiness began to flee.
I had no one to lean upon,
Until on Him I called upon.

On Him who unlocked the gates of steel,
To Him I made but a silent appeal.
And just as I thought He did not hear,
He right before me did appear.

And as I beheld His wondrous glory,
I told Him I was indeed sorry.
As tears rolled down my eye,
He told me never ever to cry.

While He wiped dry the tears of sin,
All the world seemed to me dim.
Then looked I at Him,
And told Him adamantly to bring me in.

Then did He say unto me,
Set some more prisoners free.
And when I did obey,
All worries did fade away!
