Instruments of Change

 

“And souls of men”

The wicked City reeks

With every kind of trade

From food to gems

To bondage Commerce made.

But God sees all

And “hisses” for relief

And makes a man, or two

His vessels ending grief.

And they are caught

As in the vise of love

And work, scarce known,

Deliverance from above.

Oh find some way

And make it clear

To these now

Faltering eyes;

My own small part

In Mercy’s Enterprise.

(Zechariah 9: 8-12)

(Zechariah 10: 5-9)

  1. Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord;
    He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored;
    He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword:
    His truth is marching on.

    Glory, glory, hallelujah!
    His truth is marching on.
