Looking Up And Down On Bended Knee Poem by Arlene Dery

Looking Up And Down On Bended Knee



I saw my earthly treasures,
Flash before my eyes,
In a fleeting moment,
I understood the lies.

All that's here, will have to go,
There is no lasting prize,
The day that my life will end,
Should come as no surprise.

As I build up treasure,
While walking on this earth,
Nothing gained for myself,
Will be of any worth.

So take these earthly treasures,
And toss them in the sea,
I'll be looking up
and down on bended knee.

When I was looking up
and down on bended knee,
I began searching truth,
When wisdom came to me.

Don't gain yourself treasures,
That are thrown to the sea,
The deeds for God, done today,
Are gifts, eternally.

Well done, faithful servant,
Is what I long to hear,
There holds a treasure,
In my heart, so dear.

It is but a promise,
Heaven holds our fate,
Hope is today's gift,
That says our dreams can wait.

Rewards are coming soon,
Of that there is no doubt,
Soon, we'll be going home -
With summons of a shout.

While I'm living on this earth,
This is where I'll be,
I'll be here, looking up
and down on bended knee.
