Happy to give it your energy and time,

Not minding its sin, yes, and slime;

Then you’re a poor, lost sinner, My Friend.

Have, by faith, crossed its waters, floody and wide

And know now the Spirit doth abide,

You’re a holy believer, My Friend.

And by all means, avoid Achan’s balk,

There is growth in Canaan land, My Friend.  – eab, 1/14/07
