WHY CAST DOWN, OH MY SOUL?

At times he wants to cry,

Life seems to be passing by…

He’s cast down

With none around,

Apparently to hear his cry!

Yet his Savior lives,

Enlivens and forgives…

Remove the stone

And be welcomed home,

Your Lord is very nearby!

Open the Book of Psalms

And find a passage that calms…

Spirit control

Is good for the soul,

Submitting to God without qualms!

Peace beyond understanding

Comes from Lord Most High commanding…

Wave and wind

To rescind,

His power their actions remanding.

Hope and trust in God,

Not any one else–bad odds!

Follow the Way

Christ will stay,

In Spirit til He comes with rods.

–Jonathan Caswell

(Based on Psalms 42 and 43)
