Israel's Song

Israel's Song


Upon The Wind their future stands

Ordained through God’s desire

A jewel within His mighty hands

Purified by Fire


So many years they’ve lived apart

Such bitter tears cried

With aching soul with heavy heart

They stand at life’s divide


Not always were their journeys true

Not all their deeds were right

To bring their trouble’s end in view

They’ll need to seek God’s Light


Rejoice; when Jacob’s eyes can see

When Rachel truly hears

When by God’s grace Jerusalem’s free

Shedding but joyful tears


When people dance on every street

When jubilant songs are heard

Spring will quicken her children’s feet

According to God’s Word


Though for a while, He stood aside

Though many thought He’d gone

God’s Holy Ghost ever as Guide

Would glorify His Son


Though bitter waters had to flow

Though pain she had to bear

With eyes with heart with love aglow

Her God was always there


Soon laying down her bloody sword

Repenting every wrong

Blessed is our King our risen Lord

Will be Israel’s song.....

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
