If the water was turned to wine
the world would be a beautiful place,
Instead a thousand tears drown out the silence
of calm in this place.
We should look to the heavens
for the answers we seek
yet the wolves have blinded the weak.
How much sorrow must the world partake
before they embrace the God they forsake.
Though one often says I have my dreams
they often forget they have within them the means.
When the bread has been sliced and crumbled among men
we can follow the crumbs to find our way back again.
If on our knees is where we should pray
standing on corners God hears not a word we say.
How did we get here away from the land upon which we were blessed
and from where the love among his children we once caressed.
Who gives life that gave not it’s root
who are we not to bear it’s fruit.
The rainbow is the bow around the cloud
A sign about the confusion that speaks so loud.
A promise given is a promise kept
yet outside the covenant is why they wept.
A sun and moon for signs and seasons
a light in the dark for spiritual reasons.
The earth like sand apart slips through the palms of your hands
but with water and mix we build things grand.
Together in the spirit we are in God’s hands
with a little wisdom one understands.
Guard your hearts for it is of passion
for it was of this the Lord showed compassion.
Pray to our father in the Holy One’s name
and together our lives will never be the same.
A history chosen by choice to repeat
and a world brought down to his feet.
How many times must we be pressed before we learn
it is our father who shows his concern.
If we are blind in spirit we are taught through flesh
but with wisdom bodies of the Spirit God will refresh.
Forged in love brought down by fire
look to your heart and keep check of the true desire.
Raise up your house and stand in light
only upon his rock are all things made right.
Is it no wonder they called it old glory
or have you forgotten the true founding story.
Is it no wonder they said for purple mountain’s Majesty?
or have we forgotten it and become a tragedy.
Did they not say crown thy good with brotherhood?
in the body of the Holy Spirit as we should.
Does not Church mean a congregation
or has it been turned into an entertaining sensation.
Does not love endure all things
or have we once again sought worldly kings.
Does a plant not bend toward the light in the way it must grow?
is it no wonder it is written you reap what you sow?
If you plow a wide field do you not plow straight and narrow along the row?
Is it no wonder it is written the way is wide but the path is narrow?
As you walk along that path do you not drop your seeds along the way?
Is it no wonder we were made from the dirt upon which the seeds we must lay?
How many ways have the servants of God taught
before understanding, love and communion can be wrought.
The tree of life has many branches twigs and stems bearing fruit
with wisdom we must plant our root.
For a tree cut off from its foundation
leads to a simple point of contemplation.
While watching from his towers the guardians have wept
as the vineyard has been terribly kept.
Seek wisdom in the God above
holding fast to the covenant brought about from his love.
This is wisdom:
Everyone born has 3 fathers with one most high
Every spirit grown was once before known
Every seed planted is covered in darkness under the earth to reach up into the light
Every crop not tended withers away
a lamb with a shepherd is saved from slaughter
a shepherd with sheep is always warm
But even a withered a dried up pond is filled and calm after a storm
let he who has wisdom calculate the number of the beast
while the children of God sit about the harvest and feast
