At Derinkuyu

At Derinkuyu

Today I went down to the underground city in Derinkuyu,Turkey

They went down, and down, and down

To avoid persecution,

And to praise God,

And to keep their faith


I had to lower my back

With bent knees

Through narrow pathways

In darkness, thinking

I have too much

Worries, thoughts, and things

They have only Jesus!


I lied down in one of their graves

Dug under the ground, feeling

The new strength from dirt

Planted in death,

Remembering whose I am!


When I came out

I know I am a different person.

A wild thing

That has peace!
