I write what I feel…

Army of the Lord


Post No. 862


Army of the Lord


Mine eyes have seen the glory 
of the coming of the lord,
He is trampling out the vintage
where the grapes of wrath are stored,
He hath loosed the fateful lightning
of His terrible swift sword,
His truth is marching on

Glory! Glory ! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah
Glory! Glory ! Hallelujah! His truth is marching on

Is our life on earth a proving ground

For the fight between good and evil

We cannot doubt that God will win

Because all else depends on Him:

He is the Creator of the universe.

But is mankind ready, willing and able

To take a stand, seemingly against all odds,

To join His army and defeat the evil

Dwelling and swelling in its task

To take control of mankind’s heart.

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people!

  1. How awesome will that day be. I imagine there will be plenty of terrified people that Fay as well . I think the church wants to fit in to the world too much these days to take a stand


  2. Sometimes I think people-pleasing is the aim rather than God-pleasing. The emphasis has changed. Some churches are more like palaces and that worries me too.
