let creation shake

by Martina Rathgens

by Martina Rathgens

everything fades in the light of Your glory.
everything burns in the fire of Your word.
creation shakes when You respond to my voice–
You’ve never failed a promise,
never denied Your word.
You arm me with strength
because my hands are clean.

my safe place–
i call to You
only You can save.

death comes around me
but You stand before me.

fill my mouth with the spirit of deliverance,
my hands with the tools for war.
i will speak Your liberty.

Your song is my slingshot.
Your word is my stone–
i will release the song of the Lord,
fell the giant,
cast the mountain in the sea.

i will go out with a shout,
dance with all my might,
embrace the lowest place.

my dance is a march on the neck of my enemy.
my dance is a procession on the head of captivity.

      Yes–that’s the catch indeed. Sometimes we have tunnel vision, unfortunately. I’m looking forward to the day when He brings light to all things and we no longer see “through a glass dimly.”
