Steven Reeve Poems
A Poem For Passover
Born a carpenter, He died a King, With His blood, He cancelled our sin.
A Sons Love
A son’s love last’s forever, It never goes away, Though he be near, Or on a distant shore far away.
A Mothers Tears
Who can replace mother, Certainly there is no other, She cares and she tries, And because of her children tears fill her eyes.
Israel, Israel, That eternal land. Israel, Israel,
In the rage of the noonday sun, In a suit of glittering light’s He doe’s come, To face death, To leave the crowd, with bated breath.
Saved, Always Saved
They told me you are saved, You will always be saved, Do what you want to do, You are saved.
Words Of Fire
Words of Fire, Words of Power, With the force of a steam train, With the speed of a bullet,
David And Goliath
With his army the giant stood, I mock your God, I will have your blood, Tonight you shall lay beneath the sod.
A Pillar Of Smoke, A Pillar Of Fire
A pillar of smoke by day, A pillar of fire by night, Before his people, The Mighty One led the way.
The Assassins Song
Today’s the day, Or so they say, The President must die, Oh, how the people will cry.
My back is broad and it is strong, Let me take your burdens, Let me be the one to carry them, . For I love you sweet child.
Listen to the babbling brook, Do you hear it whispering His Holy Name? Listen to the rustling of the leaves, Do they shout out His Holy Name?

Shoa: The Holocaust
Breaking glass, Kicked in doors,
In the middle of the night they came,
Rousing us from our beds,
Out, Out, Out, they screamed.
In to the cattle trucks went we,
Overcrowded and unable to move,
Stifling heat and foetid air,
Onwards, ever onwards down the track.
