Advent #4

When YOU COME dive down here from your high mountain,

Into the tear filled ocean chasm , our dark brackish fountain,

Will YOU COME with arms long outstretched ?

Will you be the swimmer to clutch and save this wretch ?

Will you swim upstream through veils and cloaks ?

Will YOU swallow each death with every stroke ?

Will YOU COME take me to a shore where I will cry no more?

Will YOU COME take me to a shore where I have but you to adore ?

From Isaiah 25

He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the Lord hath spoken it.

And he shall spread forth his hands in the midst of them, as he that swimmeth spreadeth forth his hands to swim: and he shall bring down their pride together with the spoils of their hands.”

‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭25:8, 11‬ ‭KJV‬‬
