Versatile Psalmist 66.0
A Fresh Start
Sing forth a new song and bring honor to His glorious name
The King has rejoined mankind and we are glad He came,
By the greatness of His power, His enemies are subdued
Their arrogance is no more and there is a new attitude.
The Lord turned the sea into dry land and men did walk
Into a land of promise with ripe fruit, heavy on the stalk,
His kingdom has come and there is rejoicing in the land
Thus begins the age of Messiah to rule and to understand.
We were refined in the fires of tribulation and the trials
The truth of who is truly God is revealed with no denials,
Lawlessness has been put under ground into a fiery pit
Into a state of torment are those who practiced after it.
Great wealth has been restored and the creation is pristine
The forests are blooming with flowers; the oceans are clean,
No more are there great schemes for satraps to become rich
The poets can write while every artist creates in their niche.
We are all of us gardeners and caretakers in the morning
We smile as the flowers again sing of the day a borning,
Lack, scarcity, hoarding and accumulation are no more
Abundance and laughter of children abound as before.
Every once in a jubilee cycle, a new pilgrimage is then made
To meet with Him in New Jerusalem in the Verdant glade,
He receives our offerings and shares with us a holy measure
Of His eternal wisdom for His glory and our great pleasure.
Will you be there and will you humble yourself in contrition?
Or will a lifetime of haughtiness be your refusal for submission?
You will be sifted and sorted and are not the lord of that day
Open the Scriptures and make your decision, come what may.
