Song of the Stones

You may silence the people, but never the truth. Stones will cry out if these voices are stilled.

You bid me,

“Rebuke them,

and silence their song.”

You ask if I hear what they sing.

I tell you the truth,

Breath born of the Spirit,

sent forth from above,

finds no rest till it’s had its say.

You may silence the people,

but never the truth.

Stones will cry out

if these voices are stilled.

……………………………………………………………….

Even now stones are crying,

a woeful lament.

Incline your ears to their dirge.

Massive, beautiful stones!

Great pride of the people,

Their song testifies to their doom!

My eyes take in horror.

Their pain is my own.

Broken,

I drop to my knees.

Embracing the dust,

I cradle this world

recalling the day of its birth.

How far you have fallen!

How great is your sin!

How dark is this day drawing near!

Cut off!

Held Captive!

Invaded!

Destroyed!

Stone severed from stone,

bone ripped from bone.

Oh, Wayward Child,

if only you’d known…

Kingdoms forged

of mist and shadow.

Vain ambition,

chasing wind.

Hidden faces,

turned from me.

I came to save, but you couldn’t see.

You’ve chosen your shepherd,

your idols,

your king.

You’ve chosen your fate by rejecting me.

I grieve for you,

and this vision of blood.

For the song of the stones,

and the day yet to come.

But now I must rise;

My own road awaits.

My Father, he bids me,

“Press on.”

But just one more word,

I tell you the truth,

Please dare to draw close and receive.

My strength is in knowledge

that you are my prize.

For you, I will face cross and grave.

Darkness will fall

All will seem lost,

Know this is the end of a day.

Let your grief be as mine,

Resting fully on hope.

Be faithful, and wait for the dawn.

A new song will rise!

Living stones sing

of a kingdom,

a banquet,

a bride.

Once stagnant pools,

become rivers of life!

Calling the weary, “Come, drink!”

Humble yourself!

Lay everything down!

Be still

and know who I am!

I am Messiah,

I am God’s only Son!

I am the Lion and Lamb,

I am the Light

Shining forth in the darkness!

I am your Life,

your Savior,

your King!

I am your Bridegroom –

with kindness,

I’ve drawn you.

I am your Refuge!

Your Rock!

I am Alpha!

I am Omega!

Love from beginning!

Love without end!

Be still,

and remember,

I AM!

……………………………………………………………….

You demand I rebuke them.

My answer is “No!”

Sing,

My Beloved One!

Sing!
