He Rode Hard - Poem by margaret haig

He rode hard, trying to get away and hide in that chariot That day,
He had his enemy after him, king Saul wanted his life, is what he'd say;
Poor David hadn't done wrong, and yet Saul was jealous you see,
So David told jonathon his friend, I have to go hide away, and he did agree.

He travelled fast away, Jezebel wanted to take his life, that's true,
For the prophets of Baal, you need to pay, so I take the life of you;
Elijah hid in a. Cave upon a mountain top, he sure was so afraid,
And God came and asked why, but Elijah said, my life is to be paid.

He walked hard and hurried the wrong way,
When God called him to warn the evil king that day;
So he did disobey and ran, to a ship and went too,
But it wasn't long, till Jonah was swallowed up its true.

They traveled fast and hard, to egypt through the night,
To protect their son Jesus, whom Herod gave them a fright;
He was so evil, and jealous in his heart, to know of a king,
But God protected the family, so in the dark were fleeing.

They hurried fast from their home, danger was near,
That sin city of sodom and Gomorrah to burn, oh such fear;
Life was so very evil, so much badness shouldn't be done,
3 Angels rescued Lot and his daughters, but he had no son.

They had to hurry and make an ark, for it was going to rain,
Noah was warned by God, but the people said its in vain;
God brought the animals into the ark, cause soon there'd be nowhere to park,
Then they all were locked in, Noah and his family, as the lightning did spark.

One day soon people will need to hurry and turn to the Lord,
Because Jesus will return again, the warning is in the Holy word;
We need Christ in our life, we need Him as Lord and King,
Cause we will go with Him to glory, and our praises we will sing.
