Respond !! - Poem by Betty Lou Mortenson

can we REALLY know?
can we REALLY see?
can we REALLY get.......
glimpses of Eternity?

Do you KNOW how to do it?
Should I TELL you how?
PAUSE a moment..... CALM yourself!
OPEN your heart.........prepare to bow.

King Jesus is knocking at your door,
Seeking His Chosen race,
Harden not your hears as in the Provocation.
Turn to look up into His Lovely Face.

Today, if you hear His Voice.....
His gentle call and tender tone,
Delay not. Respond to His wooing.
It's the Holy Ghost calling........calling His Blood-bought people Home.
