Children of Israel
Natural or “grafted in”
Descendants of faith given as a true life force,
Power greater than gravity
Greater than heat or cold
Greater than any chemistry or biochemistry
Greater than any emotion or inspired will, any intuition;
Beyond any human imagination.
Such treasures we have discovered, revealed in words written long ago,
Hearts are torn
Tears of repentance flow
As a veil is lifted,
Things hidden for so long now seen in the brilliance of the face of our Messiah.
The suffering of generations
Endless pains of childbirth have gone on too long,
Spirit revelation comes from above
Things of the mind, clear understanding
Now made known to the willing hearts.
Demands of survival in this world overwhelming
Fleeting and foolish, false money security efforts
Seeds of passion methodically sown long ago
Yet, fruit withers on the trees;
Vines dried up as so many wandered alone
As castoffs scattered
Separated from destined reality usurped,
Oh, the weight of generations
The crushing heartache.
Suddenly ancient words have come alive
Prophets of old become new-
Zechariah and Isaiah
Jeremiah and Ezekiel,
All the others faithful, obedient as Moses.
The weight, love driven responsibility
Burden of Godly care shouldered,
Plan of the Divine One
At last in meticulous precision made bright and clear;
A broken hearted nation will turn,
Tribes joined to their Eternal Lord.
