Beyond Those Rooms

Updated on November 6, 2013

My home is gone forever, yet it draws

Me. In that room below, the basement, there

I paced to music, slept, and studied laws

Of scripture, law and gospel, had much care

To walk by faith. Then I was moved above,

The upper floor, and walked by faith with more

Of that pure light of scripture. Bump and shove

Of life came to me. O, the pains I bore!

How youth and trouble mingled and I grieved

Because I walked by faith--the unbelief

Was all around me, yet I still believed

His Word, that Christ's return shall as a thief

Be in the night. My walk of faith proceeds

Beyond those rooms to others, where God leads.
