OVER THE RAINBOW


by Gary Jacobson


christus

Somewhere over the rainbow
Skys are blue.
Somewhere in a land old as time
But brand new.
Somewhere a shining existence waits
For good people like me and you.
anidove I long for that better world,
Live to earn its bright future unfurled,
Where life is simple,
Unhurried,
In beautiful quietude
Of glorious peace ungnarled.
anidove I reach ahungered for the light
The light eternal
Just out of sight
Seeking every day
Searching in every way
For spiritual enlightenment
A relief from this worlds blight
anidove I long to leave this frail
Contentious world behind.
The mortal cares
to which mortals are chained,
Living a life
That being leaves drained.
Living to discard
life’s toil and strife defined,
Foregoing stresses for a better kind
A world devined.
anidove Where troubles melt like fudgesickles
On a hot summer afternoon,
Where foregoing fates fickle
Release earthly suffering
Where putting off wrongs
Mankinds conscience tickles.
anidove I go to a land where brothers
Actually love their neighbor,
Oh the joy and peace
That thought does savor,
Where contented blessings
Richly favor
In the loving arms of the shepherd
Saviour.
