And if ye keep my commandments …
June 1974

“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 …
