to reality

by Jacob Dunbar

Please take me into your Kingdom

You can even pick me up by my hair 

I know in the world, I’m a pilgrim 

Only one of seven billion 

But what they think I really don’t care 

 

I know they will call me crazy 

And will even try and admit me

And  say “stop being so lazy

Just come back into slavery 

You can’t be alive and carefree”

 

But  take me into the substance 

Into what is actually real

Even against my reluctance 

The life of truth and abundance 

The world has lost its appeal 

 

I want what is true and eternal 

What no person has seen or heard

I know I will be called abnormal 

Even judged by what is external 

I have to know the Living Word

 

Please take me out of the natural 

There are so many things to explore 

I don’t want what they call practical 

Or even what they say is factual 

Because I know there is so much more 

 

Please take me into your heart 

To find my life I have lost it

I know this is only the start 

From this world I long to depart

To your love I completely submit

If the veil has already been torn

And death has been abolished 

If I have been completely reborn

Why would I embrace death’s scorn 

And rebuild what has been demolished 

 

Enoch walked with God hand in hand

And through his faith he even skipped death

He clearly saw the heavenly land

Before the Father He did stand

Without taking a final last breath

 

Death is not our point of entry

It’s not the door by which we enter

It is not some kind of sentry

And not God’s complementary 

It is a defeated tormentor

 

It is a vile and conquered foe

Through Christ we are victorious

He gave to death its final blow

And took back the keys long ago

Christ’s life is meritorious

 

Let the Lamb receive His reward

I will value His death on the cross

I will honor my Christ, my Lord

And believe in ALL He restored

In all the things that were once lost

 

All of heaven is here and now

Jesus rose up from the dead

To corruption he did not allow

He put to shame that sacred cow

And gave his flesh to be our bread

So I partake of the bread of life

I feast on His body so broken

I denounce the belief so rife

In order to now be His wife

About this I am boldly outspoken

Wellsprings of Rest
