Songs of the Spirit Warrior

THE TEARS OF THE LORD

THE EYES OF THE LORD ARE EVERYWHERE,
HIS EYE IS ON THE SPARROW WHILE GAZING AT THE BEAR.
YES, THE LORD IS LOOKING TO AND FRO
THROUGH THE HABITATIONS OF THE EARTH AND ALL ITS PEOPLE ON THE GO.

HE OBSERVES THE WICKED AS WELL AS THE GOOD,
THE SOLDIER IN HIS BARRACKS AND THE FAWN IN THE WOOD.
“HE WHO FORMED THE EYE, SHALL HE NOT SEE?”
OUR CREATOR IS BUSY WATCHING- WATCHING YOU AND ME.

TO SHOW HIMSELF STRONG ON BEHALF OF THE STOUT HEARTED AND WHOLE,
RANGING OVER THE EARTH FOR A FAITHFUL AND LOYAL SOUL.
DON’T YOU KNOW THAT IN THE DAYS OF OLD
THE LORD SAW MAN’S GREAT WICKEDNESS AND WHAT WOULD UNFOLD?

MAN’S PRIDE AND VIOLENCE, PERVERSION AND GREED
DEVISING EVERY EVIL IMAGINATION ON WHICH THE MIND COULD FEED.
PEOPLE SHED BLOOD THAT LAY CURSE UPON CURSED
UNTIL THE GROUND CRIED OUT, “THIS MUST BE REVERSED!”

EVERY PLAN DEVISED BY THE MIND OF MANKIND
WAS NOTHING BUT EVIL ALL OF THE TIME.
AND THE EARTH WAS CORRUPT IN THE LORD YAHWEH GOD’S SIGHT
FULL OF VIOLENT DEPRESSION AND ENDLESS DARK NIGHT.

BUT NOAH FOUND FAVOR IN THE EYES OF THE LORD.
NOT WITH A TEMPLE, GOOD WORKS OR A SWORD.
NOAH PREACHED RIGHTEOUSNESS AND THE WRATH MEN WOULD REAP
IN RIVERS OF RAIN AND SUDDEN BREAK OF THE DEEP.

FROM THE FOUNDATIONS OF CREATION WHEN HE SAID, THAT “IT IS GOOD,”
SINCE ADAM AND EVE SINNED IN THE GARDEN AND HID IN THE WOOD,
NOTHING IS DONE WITHOUT KNOWLEDGE OF GOD, ALL IS SEEN BY THE ONE
WHO SAW CAIN KILL ABEL, AND THOSE SLAIN BY THE KNIFE, CLUB AND GUN.

HE EVEN SAW BABEL BUILT, AND CAME DOWN TO OBSERVE.
BUT BE STEADFAST, WATCH THE CURVES IN THE ROAD WITH STEELED NERVE.
THE LORD’S EYES GO TO THE RIGHTEOUS; HIS EARS ATTEND TO PRAYER.
THE FACE OF THE LORD IS AGAINST EVIL AND THOSE WHO DON’T CARE.

THE CAMP OF THE ENEMY IS FILLED WITH ANTIPATHY, RANCOR AND PRIDE.
A PLACE WHERE INDIFFERENCE SEEMS NORMAL, WHERE APATHY CAN HIDE.
THE WARNINGS OF OLD NOAH WERE MET BY A GROUP-LAUGH.
THEY PROBABLY TOLD THE OLD MAN TO “GO TAKE A BATH!”

THE CHILDREN WERE HAUGHTY, PARENTS PUFFED UP AND PROUD;
THE HUMAN RACE TURNED UP THE VOLUME AND LET ITS VOICE BOOM OUT LOUD:

DON’T TELL US ANYTHING! OUR FISTS ARE CLENCHED, OUR MUSIC WILD!
LOOK AT THE ANGELS, ANCIENT LANDMARKS- EVEN PARENTS AND CHRIST WE’VE REVILED
.”

AND TODAY FOLKS GO ABOUT THEIR BUSINESS, RUSHING HITHER AND YON,
CONVINCED THAT THE WORLD THEY HAVE KNOWN WILL DRONE ON.
IGNORING THE WARNINGS FROM PROPHETS AND FRIEND,
SUCH THINGS WON’T CONTINUE; THERE WILL BE AN END.”

THEN THE GREAT GOD,”EL-ROI”, THE GOD OF SEEING AND BELIEVING,
SUFFERED NOT THE GREAT BOASTING, DERISION- DECEIVING!
HE WASHED AWAY THE OBTUSE, THE IMPATIENT AND PROUD
WITH WATER JUST FLOODING, LIKE THE LORD WEEPING OUT LOUD.

OUR HEAVENLY FATHER IS WATCHING US WITH DEEP LOVE AND CONCERN.
WAITING AND WATCHING AS SOME BEG TO LEARN
WISDOM FAR GREATER ON THE CREATOR’S WORST DAY
THAN THE BEST WISDOM OF MEN WITH THE GREAT WORDS THEY SAY.

HE WAS PLEASED WHEN WE ACKNOWLEDGED HOW LITTLE WE HAD.
WE LACKED UNDERSTANDING; WE STOOD IMPOVERISHED AND SAD.
CURSING OUR PARENTS WITH INGRATITUDE AND GUILE-
IT JUST NEVER STOPS, BUT JUST WAIT AWHILE…

SO HONOR YOUR PARENTS AND CHRIST ABOVE ALL.
THE FOOLISHNESS OF THE CROSS MAKES OUR OWN WISDOM GALL.
IF YOU HUMBLE YOURSELF AND STAND WITH THE MEEK
YOU MAY RESCUE YOURSELF AND GAIN WHAT YOU SEEK.
