Come oh Come oh Foot of Jesus to the ground beneath THIS TREE. . .
Does your foot still come to corrupt gardens , does it come crushing bud and head?
Does it come crush double faced flowers and snakes long ago dead?
Come oh Come oh Foot of Jesus to the ground beneath my feet. . .
Does your foot still come in snowy fields , does it come where limbs stiffly pray?
Could it come pick me amidst trees that bend and break and sway?
Come oh Come oh Foot of Jesus to the ground beneath the dirt. ..
Does your foot still bleed into these roots, does it come where sin and doubt do rot?
Could it soak this evergreen right here and uproot me for your pot?
Come oh Come of Foot of Jesus , please dig me out from this ground. . .
Does your foot still move across the barren, does it move through filth with snow?
Could it bring me to your home of Lights and from your light would I glow?
Come oh Come oh Foot of Jesus, lift me to the beauty of your arms . .
And carry me carry me to the house of Our Father where I will be a TREE dressed in heavens charms!
“And they heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God amongst the trees of the garden.
And the Lord God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.”
Genesis 3:8, 14-15 KJV
“For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thine offspring:
Sing, O ye heavens; for the Lord hath done it: shout, ye lower parts of the earth: break forth into singing, ye mountains, O forest, and every tree therein: for the Lord hath redeemed Jacob, and glorified himself in Israel.”
Quiet and trust are stakes that keep me above ground.
While men with axes shout “shut up and sit down ”
I keep my leaves still beneath the snow.
I do not move, breathe ,bear fruit or grow.
See My roots fear the depth ,my limbs feign the love …
I wait for YOU TO COME , oh burning breath from Above !
COME , JESUS melt rivers and streams across my trunk and limbs !
Come Lord Jesus and let me be an ever green in you again !!
tell me “Come Follow ” as you axe a different tone
And Speak to me a better word than I have every known ….
I am a tree ,as your psalm and song do say .
I stand with roots grounded and limbs that pray .
Oh come, oh come , Jesus and carry me out of this woods so cold!
Oh come Jesus and set me to love in your house of glory and gold!
““For thus saith the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength: and ye would not.”
Isaiah 30:15 KJV
And therefore will the Lord wait, that he may be gracious unto you, and therefore will he be exalted, that he may have mercy upon you: for the Lord is a God of judgment: blessed are all they that wait for him.”
Last time YOU CAME you left a light so , I will now keep it on!
And around its table I’ll put bright stars
And ornaments to sing my song !
I count the days til we can dance
And YOU COME to hold me in your arms !!
When all these sparkles and spangles of light will be but dim and dusty charms.
And this table where my dough is rolled will be a threshing floor.
Where all the manna that ever was will be risen and restored .
When YOU COME , oh Light of Light,
my light will seem so dim!
But still it will be a light to you ,
because you have lit it here within!
“All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.”
John 1:3-5 KJV
“The sun shall be no more thy light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee: but the Lord shall be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory.”
to step into the ocean of YOUR Love knowing YOU COME rising like a rock beneath my feet.
Trust in the LORD forever!
“Trust ye in the Lord for ever: for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength: For he bringeth down them that dwell on high; the lofty city, he layeth it low; he layeth it low, even to the ground; he bringeth it even to the dust.
O Lord our God, other lords beside thee have had dominion over us: but by thee only will we make mention of thy name. They are dead, they shall not live; they are deceased, they shall not rise: therefore hast thou visited and destroyed them, and made all their memory to perish.”
