Laughter Of The King

While praying late one evening,

After a day of test,

And feeling very weary,

Just looking for some rest,


I came into the THRONE ROOM,

And saw to my surprise,

Huge tears were rolling down

His cheeks, from Jesus' eyes!


Though having the expression

Of startle on my face,

I came to understand

From whence those tears did race!


For throwing back His head,

I thought, OUT OF CONTROL,

Suddenly I heard THUNDERS,

OF LAUGHTER FROM HIM ROLL!


"Lord" said I "What's happening?

Did someone make a jest?

As King, aren't You supposed to be,

More serious than the rest? "


I just could not imagine,

The scene I walked in on,

To see my Savior laughing,

Was to my mind, far beyond!


"CHILD ARE YOU REBUKING ME???

FOR LAUGHING, THOUGH I'M KING?

I CREATED LAUGHTER,

TO BE A WONDROUS THING!


IN FACT, YOU WOULD DO WELL,

WHEN LIFE HAS GOT YOU DOWN,

TO PUT UPON YOUR FACE A SMILE,

WHERE THERE HAS BEEN A FROWN!


IF YOUR TRUST IS IN ME,

AND YOUR BURDENS I DO BEAR,

LOOK AT LIFE THROUGH EYES THAT LAUGH,

AND ARE NOT FULL OF CARE!


KEEP YOUR EYES UPON ME,

AND TRUST ME, THOUGH I LAUGH,

I'M STILL THE KING OF KINGS,

AND I STILL HOLD THE STAFF!


SO CHILD, DON'T CONCENTRATE,

ON FEARFUL THINGS AND PAIN,

BUT, SPEND MORE TIME IN LAUGHTER

AND KNOW THAT I STILL REIGN!


DON'T SPEND YOUR TIME ON BEING BOUND,

JUST THROW BACK YOUR HEAD,

AND LAUGH OLE' SATAN OUT OF THIS PLACE,

UNTIL HE RUNS IN
