Amen


 


The Lord God commands, and it is so;


Today is His before it becomes mine;


From His mouth, shooting like an arrow


The name of the dawn flies,


Into existence, Yes, and it is so;


Joy in today is the thanks given,


For His wondrous utterance; I know


This pleases Him, who is the authority


Of creation, who orchestrated here below,


That His goodness may surface, even


In the midst of sorrow; and it is so.
