Psalm 23

Waves of death swirl…on a putrid roll…with a lethal goal.
Threats of destruction overwhelmingly loom
While the tombs tentacles make room,
They coil, then curl…constricting the soul…on a graveyard’s knoll!
Just as Hades began to crush my heart,
He sounded heaven’s fury to push apart
The clammy clutching earth to lift me out! Take me higher!
So wings of cherubim could bring low sweet chariots of fire!
Lightning blazed forth from His vengeful presence.
His thundering voice ripped open heaven’s dense
Clouds!, Yes, Life got her auspicious wish;
With His terrible swift sword…Death was vanquished!
He rescues the ones in whom He delights.
Rewards the righteous. Revokes darkness to light.
Propitiatory wings scaled harrowing heights!
Malevolent mountains leveled by majestic might.
He has brought down the lawless with “The Word”, that is flawless.
Rigor Mortis will not “stiff” this Spiritual Israelite!

WITH THESE LIPS I WILL ALWAYS BLESS YOU.  WITH THESE  HANDS I WILL BESTOW,

THE MASTERS TOUCH.................A TOUCH FROM HEAVEN,

SO THE DOWNCAST AND FORSAKEN MIGHT KNOW ,

OF A GOD WHOSE NOT SO HIGH AND LOFTY, 

WHO WOULD NOT BOW LOW TO MEET A NEED

THAT HE SPREADS PERFECT PEACE THROUGH CHRIST'S BODY,

THE SAME SPIRIT WHICH NOW INDWELLS  ME,

OH.   HOW I LOVE TO TELL HIS STORY!   OLD NEWS IS GOOD NEWS TO ME.

ITS THE BEST NEWS FROM ALL THE AGES.   YES. THE BEST IS YET TO BE! 

FOR THE GREATEST HOPE  THE GREATEST FAITH  THE GREATEST LOVE 

NOW LIVES IN ME!

He's dying to live in you.  His sanguine sacrifice ever new,

Yes, he's the way:  yesterday. forever............for you,  today.
