Her Future Stands - Poem by Michael P. Johnson

Upon The Wind her future stands
Ordained through God’s desire
A jewel within His mighty hands
Purified by Fire

So many years she lived apart
Such bitter tears she dried
So much has moved her broken heart
This side of life’s divide

She wandered long, steadfast and true
Watching her children’s plight
Yet now with journeys end in view
She sees her God’s delight

Rejoice; when Jacob’s eyes can see
When Rachel truly hears
When by God’s grace Jerusalem’s free
Shedding but joyful tears

When people dance on every street
When jubilant songs are heard
Spring will quicken her children’s feet
According to God’s Word

Though for a while He stood aside
Though many thought He’d gone
God’s Holy Ghost ever as Guide
Would glorify His Son

Though bitter waters had to flow
Though pain she had to bear
With eyes with heart with love aglow
Her God was always there

Soon laying down her bloody sword
Repenting every wrong
Blessed is our King our awesome Lord
Will be Jerusalem’s song
