From Sheol, I Rose
Poetry By Anthony James

Yea, my God
Mine heart Ye wove
Mine Spirit Ye broke

And to Sheol
Mine Soul.
And raised again
To Repentance

What is it to go to Sheol?
When, my God Ye did not leave me
Nor, leave me there...

Thy Fire Oh God
Did I see- had overcome me
I struggled to breath
Ye did not let me see
Mine breath, Cease.

Oh Merciful God

Did I die, my Lord?
Do I live, my Lord?


Author notes

Psalm 16:10  
For you will not abandon my soul to Sheol, or let your holy one see corruption.
Hosea 13:14  
Shall I ransom them from the power of Sheol? Shall I redeem them from Death? O Death, where are your plagues? O Sheol, where is your sting? Compassion is hidden from my eyes.
John 11:25  
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live
Philippians 3:10
That I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death,

Oh Blessed God, forgive me for I am not worthy to receive You, though I accept Salvation with a contrite heart and broken Spirit.
