And if ye keep my commandments …

    “And if ye keep my commandments …” New Era, June 1974, 51

    “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 …
