The Loudest Shout! The loudest shout ever heard Around the world In desperate need of a cure For its illness A bloodied, beaten Savior On a cross Trying to restore God’s favor To His humanity so lost It was God’s shout Of His intense wrath Against our sin was it about to gather us back from down a forbidden path of our indolent selfishness So listen to that shout From a cross now heard Everywhere It was His final proof To deface all doubts Meant to instill a deeper faith More holy, more devout In His loving grace Shown deeply through the Beautiful yet human face Of His Precious Only Child! So, Do not deny it By not listening Of our spirits We need a quickening A re-positioning To stand up & listen & no longer condone The darkness of Our own restless sin
Why? Why do we not see Is it we cannot Or do not want to be Faithful, submissive Obedient To someone greater Than the I of me? Hardening of the heart To the idea of such a God To all of life gives Only a very false start Saying I don’t Want to see Does not change Our Reality Open your inner eyes On just the physical Do not rely Do not wear IGNORANCE As a disguise For refusal A lack of perusal Into the gracious beauty Of Our Father/Creator!
gods of earth Caught up in the here & now To earthly gods we tend to lean & bow Comfort, convenience, luxury, Pleasure All of these we lust after Treasure Let’s turn away No longer to be fools Controlled by useless satan’s tools & their ever growing deceit So, turn away From those fragile gods of glass As easily Will God’s truth shatter The shining illusions Coming close Will His breath scatter Destroy Robbing them of their fraudulent Joys!
