The Destroyer, The Flood, and The Wall (Hebrews 11:28-30)

The grisly specter draws his naked sword,
He comes to kill by edict of the Lord.
You are my refuge from Your dreadful wrath.
Your blood alone makes the destroyer pass.

The legions of the pharaoh whelm my way,
The world in panoply to scoff and slay.
I trust your path will lead me through the sea,
And You will keep the flood from drowning me.

The walls of Jericho reach to the sky,
I tremble to attack, lest I should die,
Yet I believe the gates of hell can’t stand,
But must collapse before God’s mighty hand.

For faith has guided all the saints before,
And leveled all the foemen of the Lord.

The Raging (Psalm 2)

I see the nations raging,
With plotting in conspiracy,
In blasphemy engaging,
They meditate on vanity.
They wish to loose the fetters,
And break the bonds to become free,
Yet His laws make all better,
His bonds are reason, gravity.

I see the Son arising!
Be quick to kiss His hands and feet,
And flee from your despising,
That path but leads to your defeat.
Those found in insurrection,
He laughs at them and levels them,
Yet in His resurrection,
He cleanses those who turn to Him.

Arise, O Lord (Psalm 35:1-10)

Arise, O Lord, and hear my plight,
And for my vindication fight!
I will not for myself contend,
But trust that You will now defend.

Arise, O Lord, with buckler born,
And bring my shield: the faith I’ve sworn,
Unsheathe the spear snatched from my foe,
The strength of Your salvation shown.

Arise, O Lord, and bring dismay,
On those who seek my life for prey,
Turn back their course, confuse their plots,
Bring them to shame, their plans to naught.

Arise, O Lord, Your angel send,
To chase the wicked to their end,
Their way be perilous and dark,
And dread of God consume their heart.

Arise, O Lord, their pit is laid,
Their net disguised for feet that strayed,
Destroy the foe’s insidious plots,
Let him within his net be caught.

Arise, O Lord, and hear my praise,
A song of Your salvation raised,
Let all my bones exalt Your deeds,
Who helps the one who was in need.
