In Praise Of The Most High


Hail ye all the God of Elijah,
He who answereth by fire
Commander of the host of Israel,
My God He is for real
You may call Him Elohim,
For all fullness is in Him
Ever faithful and merciful God,
One who changeth not
His name is the Most High,
'Cos He reigns from on high
Showing compassion,
And never missing in action
Who art thou mountain?
Before Him thou art nothing!
Him it was who parted the Red Sea,
And supplied His people manna to eat
He muzzled the lion in its den,
And kept unhurt His servant Dan
The Prince of peace,
Call on Him and be at ease

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
