The Deer crashes through the forest
Made desperate by the gun.
The lion chases the goat who in
terror is made to run.
The mother of the child is frightened
She fears and hates the snake.
The whole forest dreads the bear
and the havoc he can make.
But a new voice comes in love and great power
And announces the arrival of the long awaited hour.
“They shall not hurt or destroy in all my Holy Mountain;
For the whole for the whole earth.
Shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord
As the waters cover the sea”.
There is a miracle in that voice
The lion and the bear take note;
of deeply buried understandings
That no longer are remote.
No Man or beast dare rebel
against The Speaker who is God
Who speaks with an authority
That is ether feared or awed.
Then, a world against itself
Did not know His way
Now a world is ordered
because they heard Him say:
“They shall not hurt and destroy in all my holy mountain;
For the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord
As the waters cover the sea.
