Through the haze of centuries past,
The myriads of angels peered,
And for salvation prophets grasped,
But now Ineffable is here.
So therefore hope! And gird your loins,
And with sobriety of mind,
Harness creative, central points,
Streamline your thoughts to grace and kind.
Let nothing burden now your stand,
So cast away the cumbered weight.
Best meet the Lord with but one hand,
Then never enter Heaven’s gate.
Equip yourself for battle then,
The Sword of God do practice well,
Crowd out rebellion born in men,
With love for God your heart will swell.
Control your mind and sober be,
Look not to trans or wine of fear.
Ruled not by reason, ruled by Me,
And I will guide your reason here.
Surrender then to perfect Hope,
Hope in the Lord – not in your life,
Not in your country, church, or home,
But firmly in God’s grace through Christ.
