“The voice of the Lord…discovereth the forests.”
– Psalm 29:9, KJV

 

You Lord, who makes the cedars to break,
You, the waters that bend the world,

You God, the floods to rise upon,
You, who in storm our need unfurl;

Come Lord, discover the forest yet shaken,
birthing its fawn, breaching its deer,

Divide the flames of fire before us,
wilderness racing ravine unto ridge.

Voice your name, God, the treetops to listen,
free fall your glory, your temple instill,

Raise up the horn of your strength in our making,
deepen the peace of your people here.

(William B Jones, May 10, 2014, after Psalm 29)
