based on Revelation 15.2, 3a “ And I saw what appeared to be a sea of glass mingled with fire—and also those who had conquered the beast and its image and the number of its name, standing beside the sea of glass with harps of God in their hands. 3 And they sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb,
In primordial time in the timeless wait,
The Spirit hovers over the darkening deep,
God sings in command, light bursts through the gate
Bringing dayspring and beauty and glory’s bright heat.
In hatred and spite Pharaoh sets Israel free,
And though sheltered in glory ‘neath fire and cloud,
They despair and are pinned ‘tween army and sea,
And find rescue through trial where others had drowned.
Old and new Baptizers on Jordan’s banks meet;
John washing with water beholds Fire’s face;
The Righteous submits all just fullness to keep;
Heaven sings out in song of His exalted grace.
And there on His shore, we’ll sing by stilled seas
Washed in New Creation, at peace eternally.
