Further Still

There is a place of “further still”

It starts in a manger and ends on a hill

It gave birth to love with the shepherds near by

And it led to a cross and a darkened sky


“Further still” is a place Jesus sought,

To talk with God as evil He fought

To drink as God willed, the cup of forbidding

The only salvation for a world that sin was sinning


At this place of “further still”

Jesus found strength in God’s perfect will

The struggles were over and peace filled His heart

The place where He departed…is where we must start


Alone… with God…at “further still”

We shall be changed by His perfect will!
