Leaping Up And Down - Poem by MBJ Pancras

I leap up to hug the cross of Christ,
And look at the pierced side of His,
I watch Blood and water flow in strain.
He shed His Blood once for all for man’s redemption,
The Heavenly Scapegoat of mortal sins whipped and torn,
The Father’s Only Son begotten with His Name glorified.

I leap down to touch the pride of Satan,
And look at the coated venom of serpent,
I watch the flood of pleasures sway the precious soul.
Lucifer broke the Heaven’s Holy Law,
The outrageous arch enemy of God raised on the coveted throne,
The eternal fire’s only dictator with his name cursed.

I leap up…I leap down…
For still I’m on the earthly wing,
And my every pace hath pricks and kisses.
When I leap up it’s Christ Who strengthens my soul;
When I leap down it’s Satan who weakens my soul.

Often my soul rises Heavenward;
But there lingers a devouring lion, who hacks me to die,
My soul shouts to the Lord:
‘My Lord, I fall in the quagmire of pleasures,
Lift me unto Thy Presence in Christ,
My sins are before Thee, before me.
Seek me out of the flames of fire
That I shall escape the furnace of the Fire.’

The Lord lifts me unto Him, and I know He is my Saviour
For He lay down His life beneath thorns and thistles
That I shall receive the Crown of Glory.

I leap up…I leap down…
But my Saviour is beside me with His Providence.
