POEM: GO FORTH OH SONS OF DOVE! 1/14/07
Deep within the breast of the dove
A gentle heart beats with God’s love.
Softly cooing, deeply yearning
Always beating, ever stirring.
Humble in nature, pure and white
Are the dove ones, God’s pure delight.
Called in heaven, sent to the earth
Having waited long to be birthed.
Eyes opened, awakened from sleep
Penetrated shells cracked so deep.
Until their hearts became broken
Their shells would never be opened.
Wiser now through silent suffering
From deep groanings under their wings.
Long they have waited for their God.
Heaven releases, earth applauds.
Go forth sent ones, doves of great worth!
Peacemakers sent to walk the earth.
Covering cracks with righteous prayers
Establishing rule, as God’s heirs.
Interceding Words, bridge the gap
That which offends covered and wrapped.
Praying for those not innocent
Grieving over all that is bent.
Knowing God, they tremble with fear
At what they see, at what they hear
Of wicked tares sown in the dark
Of what tares reap outside the ark.
Candled with floodlight, hearts are shown.
A dove’s defense is God alone.
Sacrificed covenants; they’re spent.
Not for their own sake, they defend
With the olive branch in their beak
They’re sent as signs to those who seek.
Not from striving, but in His rest
Believing God’s Word as their best.
Lifted up in God’s holy hand
He’s set them free, they’ll walk the land.
Salted sacrifice; heavens’ sons
Sprinkling the earth as glorious ones.
Matt 3:16-17 NKJV
Behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw
the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting
upon Him. And suddenly a voice came from heaven, saying,
"This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased."
Matt 12:18-21 NKJV
"Behold! My Servant whom I have chosen, My Beloved in
whom My soul is well pleased! I will put My Spirit upon
Him, And He will declare justice to the Gentiles.
He will not quarrel nor cry out, Nor will anyone hear
His voice in the streets. A bruised reed He will not
break, And smoking flax He will not quench, Till He
sends forth justice to victory; And in His name
Gentiles will trust."
