psalm 95: dream of victory

earth-mountain-7699

tonight let’s sing of victory,
we’ve been composing hymns
to our sorrow for too long,
why not write a joyous melody
to the moment we’ve been dreaming of,
the world we’ve been struggling for,
the place where deliverance
patiently awaits our arrival.

let’s sing out to a power
far greater than any we have ever known
or could possibly imagine,
our jubilant notes of praise
guiding us like breadcrumbs over impossible,
impassable mountain peaks, through
the narrowest of narrow spaces
where creation once wrenched land from sea.

let’s praise with wild abandon
the love that has nurtured us,
the strength that has somehow sustained us,
the journey that has been leading us
to this one timeless moment.

for too long we’ve been stumbling
through the wilderness
hardening our hearts in doubt,
fearfully shutting our eyes to wonders
we’ve never dared imagine, to the signposts
that might otherwise show us the way.

let’s stand down the voices
that whisper of our unworthiness, yes
we are the ones whose song
cannot not be silenced,
the ones who will fight back and win,
we are the generation that will finally
cross over to the place
of joy everlasting.
