HOLLOW or FILLED

Ever received at Christmas

A box surprisingly light?

It seemed it might be empty

When you looked inside ─ you were right. 

2

Except for a piece of paper

Its cavernous space was hollow,

Directions or “a promise” the

Giver expected you to “swallow.”

3

Some folks lives are hollow,

Shallow, empty, weighing light

They need Jesus to fix them,

Wrong needs replaced by right.

4

Friend is your life “on empty”

Running, but-barely, on short supply?

Are you grasping at earthly straws

Waiting, yet dreading to die?

5

Let Jesus fill your hollow life,

Fill it with purpose and song.

You too can shine and you can shout,

Now – – – and Eternally long.

HOLLOW or FILLED

Ever received at Christmas

A box surprisingly light?

It seemed it might be empty;

When you looked inside ─ you were right.

Directions or “a promise” the

Giver expected you to “swallow.”

 

Some folks lives are hollow,

Shallow, empty, weighing light.

Friend, is your life on empty

Running, but-barely – on short supply?

Are you grasping at earthly straws,

Waiting, yet dreading, to die?

 

Let Jesus fill your hollow life,

Fill it with purpose and song.

You too can shine and you can shout

Now – – – and Eternally long.
