“And if ye keep my commandments …”

if the sea rises up and covers all that I own
and the earth breathes a fiery sigh
of destruction all around me
I will rest in the safety
of His arm
and rejoice in the comfort
of His Spirit
and if the morning
never shatters my windowpane again
if never again the silver shadow
of the evening taps upon
the glass
I may be blinded then
but in my inner-sight
the eyes of my soul
with the light of the
Spirit of the Lord
I will see the green grass again …
