There’s such a man
As I will tell you of
Who was brought
From death to life
Such men are few on earth
So learn from this one
And change your heart.
He was righteous in his ways
A precious branch of many fruits
In the Word he took deep root
And followed Jesus step by step.
But one day as he prayed
He was translated into God’s presence
(Make no mistake; he frequented God’s place)
But on that day, met he the Lord
And straight away God asked him thus:
“What brought you here?”
He was shocked, so he listened well
“What brought you?” a second time.
Then he knew this was extreme
For God’s Words were never so unusual
And so as always, he humbled himself
And sat at the Father’s feet to learn.
“Beloved son”, God warmly said
(For God was touched by his humility)
“You have walked so well with Me
And I see how you long for Me
But recently I noticed this
That as you continually came to Me
You brewed a confidence in this
That your righteous walk with Me
Was what gave you right access to Me.
“But herein now is your fault
For you gradually lost sight of the Blood;
The only pass for your entrance here
Therefore go and get your pass
And never let go of the Blood
For righteousness makes you tarry with Me
But coming to Me in the first place
Is granted by none other but the Blood”.
