“that there should be places to pray”

“The remnant of the trees in the forest shall be so few
that a child may count them one by one.
On that day the remnant of Israel, the survivors of Jacob…
shall loyally lean on the Lord, the Holy One.
A remnant shall turn again…to God their champion.” 

– Isaiah 10:19-21 (NEB)

 

When the hilltop you rose once
dissolves, undone,

when those trusted nurture it
slip beyond,

when the chapel you prayed
and the one glinting sun

weep remove, pray the remnant
brave on.
