Get Somewhere

classic poetry header
*Pastor’s Note: A.B. Simpson was a very well respected Canadian preacher, theologian and author who lived from December 15, 1843 to October 29, 1919. My prayer is that you will be blessed and inspired by his poetry as much as I am.


Are you groping for a blessing,
Never getting there?
Listen to a word in season,
Get somewhere.

Are you struggling for salvation
By your anxious prayer?
Stop your struggling, simply trust, and—
Get somewhere.

Are you worn and heavy laden,
Pressed with many a care?
Cast your burden on the Lord, and—
Get somewhere.

Would you know the Great Physician
Who your sickness bare?
Simply take Him at His word, and—
Get somewhere.

Does the answer seem to linger
To your earnest prayer?
Turn your praying into praise, and—
Get somewhere.

Are you looking for your mission,
What to do and dare?
Cease your dreaming, start at something—
Get somewhere.

You will never know His fulness
Till you boldly dare
To commit your all to Him, and—
Get somewhere.

All your efforts are but building
Castles in the air
Till you answer yes to God, and—
Get somewhere.
