“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
when those trusted nurture it
when the chapel you prayed
and the one glinting sun
weep remove, pray the remnant
