At Last

From Blog10


Thank God I’ve died at last…
Died to all my wants,
Died to all my plans.

      My self is dead, is past…
      Who cares what it wants?
      Who cares what it plans?

I’ve died to live at last…
Live to Jesus’ wants,
Live to Jesus’ plans.

For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.
--Colossians 3:23

Note: I don't claim to have fully arrived at the state described in this poem, but the Lord is truly at work in me. I must keep on killing self.
