He stands strong as the winds gust and blow about
A fearless soul on a high mountain
Warrior anchored in Heaven’s Hope
Stillness within, where the knowledge of God rests
Messiah’s peace the true Spirit wind that moves body, soul and spirit
Lifts the heart and carries the mind
To places of quiet very high above the dust and clouds
Where endurance and suffering in the Kingdom Truth
Is fully embraced.
The earthly winds of change howl and wail
Violence and deceit seem to have their own way,
But in essence fall flat like human words to the ground
Like a rock of anger in hatred thrown
That hits only the dirt with a thud.
Powerful angels stand unseen at the world’s four corners
Ready to snuff out all wind
A deathly, stagnant calm will settle on the nations
Until the Sword of Justice flashes
And separates a once proud nation from North to South
Splitting far apart the Mississippi River Valley
Never again to be joined and healed
Never again to be united.
