COME ALIVE!…by Carl Gooch

Come Alive
Look around what do you see
The devil is laughing with glee
We’re living in a world gone mad
We lost those good values we had.
He calls out to each of us
Come alive, come alive
Calls out to our dead hearts
Come alive, come alive
Listening with ears that do not hear
The children crying in dread and fear
We laugh and joke at the down and out
Instead of with open hearts reaching out.
He calls out to each of us
Come alive, come alive
Calls out to our dead hearts
Come alive, come alive
Lord, though we may not yet see
We know you’re the God of victory
Fill our dead hearts with fervent desire
Send your Spirit to set our soul on fire.
He calls out to each of us
Come alive, come alive
Calls out to our dead hearts
Come alive, come alive

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
