A gentle Shepherd leads
The humble flock follows
Safe and secure
Wrapped within a bright cloud of peace
Glowing cloud of protection,
Cloud of power and absolute authority.
Many Words spoken from the Throne of God
All become very sharp swords
In the hands, in the mouths
Of the survivors of Israel,
Remnant joined to the eternal vine
Grafted in to their own ancient olive tree once more.
The enemy and his poisonous rants
Like pesky bugs that encircle
Bite, nibble and annoy;
A word spoken in time
As a kiss on the lips, calms the waters
Stills the howling winds
Cleanses the chosen path.
Clouds of darkness cover the blue sky
This world choked with idols
World of self worship of man, of woman
Who bow down to what human hands have made;
The greedy few who lead
Those who sell their souls to Lucifer,
Crude and vulgar barter for the good things sought on earth,
Power and wealth and control.
But then the procession of life and truth walks by,
Blinding light of heavenly brilliance
Enlightenment beyond mere man
Heavenly beauty beyond mere woman,
People of the world sneer and growl at them
Hate and attack the innocent children
Often led by religious pretenders-
False prophets, false pastors and ministers
Ego driven book writers
Parasites with smooth, buttery words.
Gentle ones like their Lord,
Who serve another God,
A God who keeps His Word
As on Calvary,
Gentle ones stand tall and strong
Hands of worship held high
Even in His Jerusalem!
