I was awoken at 1.40 this morning by the Holy Spirit with this line " There is a rising Crimson Tide." I have arthritis and it is bad right now but I knew if I did not get out of bed the line would be gone and there would be no poem, so I got up and was inspired by the Lord to write this, I pray that it blesses you. Upon reading it back to myself I see that it could be sung to the tune of " The house of the rising sun." There is a rising Crimson tideThat burns inside of meTis from my wounded Master's sideWhich flows from CalvaryThis fire was set when I met HimSo very long agoAnd though the years are passing meThis fire will always flowIt rises and consumes my heartThis heart He gave to meThis fire consumes my very soulWhich flows from CalvaryAnd from His nail pierced hands it flowsAnd trickles down on meWho kneels below this Crimson flowThe cross of CalvaryAnd I am raised up by the tideOf Crimson's glorious fireHis blood it cleanses all of meAnd raises me up higherIt takes me all the way to heavenTo stand before His throneI lift my hands and worship HimFor me His Blood atoned.Consumed by a fire of molten LoveThat flowed on me from up aboveIgniting every part of meThank God in Christ for Calvary
Hey bro. I just sang it to the House of the Rising Sun. Awesome! Bro just awesome! Think I will send it tomorrow night on the call.Bro Blaine.
Oh, Roll Tide. :) Roll over me!!
Keep on rollin brother..........bro Frank
Brother Frank, God surely gives you amazing songs!!!What glorious words but I prayed ,Lord, is there a better tune for it than House of the rising sun!!!!After a few pages of browsing through a hymnal I came to "There is a Fountain Filled With Blood" . The melody has no known author. Early American melody. Almost perfect!! What do you think? I've heard Blaine sing that one :)Sis LPS will pray for that arthritis thing. You are too young for that!!! God bless you for rising in the night to write those words down. Thank you Lord for your psalm writer, Frank!!!
I am sure you are right Leslie :) I have no musical ability whatsoever so it is out of my hands :) I was a Bricklayer for 25 years Leslie hence the arthritis :) I also have three bulging discs, two in the neck and one at the bottom, L5 S4. I have sciatica on one side and bursitis on the other ( well balanced man) and had surgery on both shoulders. If I were a horse you would just put me down :) .......... bro Frank
