The following poem was scratched down on the back of my hunting license while I was sitting in a blind one morning waiting for a possible deer to come along. It was such a blessing and came to me so easily that I knew it was from the Lord and share it as I believe it may be a blessing to you too.
Beautiful For Situation Psalm 48:2
Beautiful for situation
Is the Zion of my King.
Jewel of Jehovah’s choosing,
He, the One of Whom I sing.
Yet as great as is the standing
Of the nation Israel,
My position’s even greater,
Who was once a child of hell.
Test the bulwarks, walk the ramparts,
None is more secure than I;
Chosen in the Lord and precious,
I’ll be with Him by and by.
In the meantime, He has sent One
Who is absolute in power.
He it is Who guards the castle;
Day and night, and every hour.
If the enemy should catch me
Fast asleep in danger’s way;
My Protector never slumbers,
He will keep me, come what may.
If an arrow shot in secret
Targets me while on the field;
If it reach me, ‘tis to teach me;
Otherwise, ‘twill hit my Shield.
There is not a thing can harm me,
From God’s Word, I understand;
Long before it ever reach me,
It must first pass through His hand.
So I’ll rest my faith in Jesus,
He’s my Captain, He’s my Stay;
And await the shout of triumph;
Who knows? It may be today!
