JOHN'S GOSPEL: ABIDING
Another thing with which John was delighted
Was what was known and spoken about abiding.
On Christ abode the Spirit, undivided,
And the disciples began with the enquiry
Where He abode, wishing to be beside Him.
Christ's desire was that those who were enlightened
Abide in His own word without repining;
Unless each one, regarded as a vine-branch,
Abides in Him no fruit will be provided
And there is promised a place of God's designing
- An area of joy without confinement -
Within the Father's house, assured by Christ's place.
