Poem

The Single Key

Michael Beck Michael Beck

Why are you behind me? Get up from off your feet!
Another you must follow, to Him pull up a seat
Remove my name from your lips! Point none to visit me
Don’t make my Master jealous, an idol I won’t be
I don’t have all the answers, I’m not the one to trust
Follow only Jesus, all men are only dust
Their insights soon will flicker, their formulas will fade
The way they say you must go is not the Way He paved
No other revelation, no other clever mode
Can be your key to blessing, can be your access code
Jesus, only Jesus, from first to last must be
The one your eyes are fixed on, to God your only key
