If you feel at home in Egypt’s “clime,”

Happy to give it your energy and time,

Not minding its sin, yes, and slime;

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

 

If you’re out of sin but wand’ring wild,

Out of sin, but very much a child 

Wanting religion – Please “keep it mild.”

Then you’re a carnal Christian, My Friend.

 

If you’ve approached Jordan at high tide,

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

And know now the Spirit doth abide,

You’re a holy believer, My Friend.

 

Is there more to this Egypt-toward-Canaan walk?

Yes, circle Jericho, circle without talk,

And by all means, avoid Achan’s balk,

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