AT SUCH A TIME AS THIS




At such a time as this
When wishing is ridiculous
When prayer is questionable
      at best
All a man can do
Is wait with utter courage
For what may not exist.

In the midst of such faith
One trumpet blast is all
      that is necessary
Then watch the walls
Of Jericho 
Come tumbling
Tumbling

And see the holy light
Awake upon all
The gates of the new and
      transformed place
Hellish Babylon comes
Crashing down amid 
Such courage

The awakening of Grace
Makes the holy city blaze
Where all was grey and fallen
An instant before

Such is the wondrous nature 
      of the Lord's Grace
And the One who can hold
      the vessel
High and chaste
To receive it

So easy
It is all so easy
And impractical, non-
      rational
The sunrise creates
The time of morning
In the 3rd eye
Which was blind before.
