Angels stand to serve
Powerful beings, humble before the Holy Throne
Look upon the Face of Majesty
Then look to the Earth,
Purest expressions of the joy of life
The joy of creation,
As words spoken, names given
Birthed from the will of our Heavenly Father
Through the exulted Son, joy in authority
Joy in power, Creator forever praised,
Rock of all seen and unseen, every good thing.
Man in rebellion, weak as ever
Woman often an enabler in selfishness
Both emotionally wound about what is lost,
Foolishness of youth excited
Preyed upon so easily,
Many casualties strewn along every path.
Generations come and gone
Worldly stars shine for a tiny moment
Then points of light are faded and forgotten.
Those angels experienced in my own life
Lift and encourage, protect and honor
Guard my coming and going,
Frail human soul
Such a delicate embrace of eternity;
But the great price was paid, ownership Sovereignly established
Redeemer’s hand grasps tightly
Messiah’s finger of the Spirit touches,
All the eternal forces of light
Drive off the earthly parasites of darkness.
