Savior, today You arrested me, Yes, me, Eric J Beachy,
No one noticed it at all, and for help, I did not call.
It wasn’t at the start of the day but toward the end,
That you came and the charge was that I didn’t bend.
I didn’t bend to your nudge, I kept living and didn’t budge.
You gave me my freedom, and allowed me to live.
And I lived……and thought to have escaped
But at the day’s end, I had lived a fake.
So you arrested me…and my attention you now have,
Your appeal was to live in your strength and I had laughed.
But what foolishness…what weakness…what hopelessness,
I was a fool to believe that I could live under my own rule.
So Officer take me, and don’t bother posting bail,
I desire to live joyfully, outside of self’s jail,
And though in your presence, I am again free,
Dear Lord, should I e’er forget this lesson, arrest me
