12. Voices from the Shore

Into The Sea
by Attalus


i hear the voices from the shore. they say “come home young man come home.” the chorus grows with every mile and lures me in with hellish tones “one more night” a lover cries. “come back to bed and you’ll find your rest.” “your bed’s a coffin” i reply. “your love’s the doorway that will lead me to my death.” (get back). still her voice is stirring and I can’t drown it out with just a word. “make haste make haste” – i tell myself. “you must learn to let go of her. you must let go.”

another voice transcends the miles. deadly as poison but sweet as wine. “come out tonight” she says to me. “and we’ll have ourselves a good old time. remember that night we sang and danced and drank ourselves into a trance?” “course I remember” – i shouted back. “that’s the night i lost my innocence.” but her voice lingers and I can feel it draw me even still. “make haste make haste” i tell myself. “don’t let the lust control your will. you’ve had your fill.”

now sorrow grips my warring mind as i think of the people still lining the shore. lovers and friends i left behind because they couldn’t see what i left for. a one-night stand. a pint of beer. did i find happiness in these? i looked for peace in every pleasure but they only brought me further to my knees. now a voice is calling me and i can feel it draw me out to Sea. “make haste make haste” it says to me. “you must set sail to be set free. you must set sail. come away. come awake.”

alas i hear a voice call out. He says “come home young man come home.” the chorus grows with every mile and lures me in with heavenly tone. “one more step” my Savior cries. “come here to Me and I’ll give you rest.” my feet hit the water and i run at last right through the door to life and death. and all the voices start to soften as i walk with my Savior on these waves. “be still be still” He tells my soul. “your sin is lying in the grave. don’t heed the voice from the shore. they have no power in this place. take heart take heart you’re in my arms. we’re walking on a Sea of Grace. your soul is safe.”
