Song in the Key of David

Again the organs of perception were touched, and lo!
above and around me, and far in the distance, were passing and repassing
with the quickness of thought, spirits of pure light.
Marietta Davis

The name of all names in perpetual becoming

Is Christ the Almighty, empyrean giver

Eternally flowing,  this heavenly river

Lights all of creation’s epiphany humming

Down hillsides through valleys translucent in splendor

Free-flowing,  unbounded the waters are ringing

As messengers ever returning to sender

Go forth on their missions in limitless singing

God’s name is the key – hidden even from angels;

His waters, in wrath, turn to brimstone and blood

Laying waste to our dwellings by juggernaut flood

But the houses on rock, still receiving His signals

Endure by the ruins where churches once stood

(All reduced now to wreckage – our idols are wood).
