Where is This You Brought Us? (Hebrews 12:18-24)

O dread and sovereign Lord,
Where is this you brought us?
To Sinai, hard and scorched,
Through fire-flashing.
Tornado-winds and cloud,
Around Your person shroud,
With trumpet blasting loud.
Your voice in power roaring,
When Moses shook and trembled.
O dread and sovereign Lord.

O great and gracious Lord,
Is this where You brought us?
To Zion’s heavenly court,
With angels feasting.
Your throne on crystal sea,
Your face at last we see,
O Christ, unceasingly.
The Church of the firstborn,
With Jesus blood be-sprinkled.
O great and gracious Lord.

Authority, Identity, Destiny (Hebrews 11:23-29)

Since God defines what goodness is,
There is no law which counters His,
Our faith fathers obedience,
To our greater authority.

Both Earth and Heaven lock in spar,
To claim us as their rightful heir,
Yet faith determines who you are,
And what is your identity.

A sinner’s passive to the truth,
A saint will always grace pursue,
Our faith will guide the things we do,
And follow God’s called destiny.

Death (Proverbs 29:18)

Where rain will never fall,
Where rivers never flow,
The land will stall and dry,
The fields will slowly die.

Where sun will never rise,
Where moon will never gleam,
The beasts with cries will cease,
While people scream and freeze.

Where scripture is not preached,
This scene is worst of all,
With vision leached men flee,
Seek self, the Fall, and blasphemy.
