ASLEEP IN SORROW
(12 April 2008 by Carl A. Patton)
Many still stand asleep and
sleeping in sorrow.
I see the first slaves as this institution
“And Moses spake so unto the
Children of Israel: but they
Hearkened not unto Moses for
Anguish of Spirit, and for cruel bondage.”
I also hear their cry for relief
from the oppression of Pharaoh.
They wandered still with hard
heads in disbelief still disobedient.
Still in doubt many lost in the wilderness
knew not the Savior and helped Him
to the Cross.
Still sleeping in sorrow and asleep they
deny the transition of the Old to the new
and yet wait to see Jesus.
“And he then rose up from prayer,
and was come to his disciples, he
found them sleeping for sorrow.”
Some say this next group of chattel
subjects descended from the first
group. Did they come from the same
Meanwhile oppression met them head
on from the time they saw the western
Bondage brought freedom and they
also wandered from south to north to
east and west seeking more freedom.
Groups on race claimed their troubles
but the masses still saw very little and
most slept endlessly in sorrow and pain.
