Vanishing Castles Luke 9:24-25

I had walked life’s path with an easy tread,

Had followed where comfort and pleasure led;

and then by chance in a quiet place

I met my Master face to face.


With station and rank and wealth for goal,

Much thought for body but none for soul,

I had entered to win this life’s mad race-

When I met my Master face to face...


I met Him and knew Him and blushed to see

That His eyes full of sorrow were fixed on me;

And I faltered and fell at His feet that day

While my castles vanished and melted away.


Melted and vanished and in their place

I saw naught else but my Master’s Face;

And I cried aloud “Oh, make me meet

To follow the marks of Thy wounded Feet”


My thought is now the souls of men;

I have lost my life to find it again,

Ever since in that holy place

My Master and I stood face to face.
