 A Rising Crimson Tide

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 tide
That burns inside of me
Tis from my wounded Master's side
Which flows from Calvary

This fire was set when I met Him
So very long ago
And though the years are passing me
This fire will always flow

It rises and consumes my heart
This heart He gave to me
This fire consumes my very soul
Which flows from Calvary

And from His nail pierced hands it flows
And trickles down on me
Who kneels below this Crimson flow
The cross of Calvary

And I am raised up by the tide
Of Crimson's glorious fire
His blood it cleanses all of me
And raises me up higher

It takes me all the way to heaven
To stand before His throne
I lift my hands and worship Him
For me His Blood atoned.

Consumed by a fire of molten Love
That flowed on me from up above
Igniting every part of me
Thank God in Christ for Calvary

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 L

PS 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
