Chasers

 

Chasers
By Christine Hare Tate
~

Some chase after rainbows

And their pot of gold;

Some chase after yesteryear

And the days of old.

Some chase after fame,

For the attention it brings;

Some chase after fortunes

To buy material things.

Some chase after alcohol

To escape their inner pain;

Some chase after power

And the glory they’ll attain.

The wise chase after Jesus

The redeemer of mankind,

Who came to give sight

To the spiritually blind.

Jesus fills the void

Inside of every man

That chasing after dreams

In a lifetime never can!

~


I denied myself nothing my eyes desired; I refused my heart no pleasure.
My heart took delight in all my labor, and this was the reward for all my toil.
Yet when I surveyed all that my hands had done and what I had toiled to achieve,
everything was meaningless, a chasing after the wind;
nothing was gained under the sun.
[Ecclesiastes 2:10-11]
