Be separated in your heart
As the fear of the Lord correctly divides
Precise and clean and timely,
True sanctuary provided for heart and soul
Invincible refuge from this world and its ways
Eternal protection from the wicked who act wickedly,
And their deceptive evils,
At times like a volcano that erupts
Floods lava and covers the land,
Ruthless ones, always conspiring;
Much as a once beautiful garden expanse
Colors and shapes and aromas to celebrate,
Yet, now stands defiled and filled with weeds
Thorn bearing plants of every kind
That seek to cover and consume.
But the hand of the destroyer is already broken
One powerful foot on the hand, another on the head
Long ago crushed as a serpent,
Soon to plunge into a lake of burning sulfur.
An exquisite temple shelter waits for all who choose life
A beautiful tent cover for the willing
A most comforting refuge from every possible storm
Every swirling destructive wind large or small,
Even a dust storm in the scorching desert sunlight.
Time is truly on our side
Our Good Shepherd stands near,
His flock very secure
His flock of freedom.
Even our Sovereign King of all Jews
Our Lord over all men and women
Cleansed within by His Holy Spirit
The only “eternal circumcision” of a true Jew.
