the morning stars sang together




"and to think...we shouted for joy"

the words, those words
water to the thirsty traveler
parched...lips cracked
limp and worn weary

she spoke the words of life
she spoke the words from the well
that never runs dry
she revived 

i was there
stretching the line
i know i was there
shouting
measuring
with joy

so now i declare
when all was held in the balance
i chose
humbled, reaching
knowing
even the sparrow does not fall
every hair is numbered
we are precious
and He is aware
all
in His care

a tender mercy
to be offered a drink
thirst quenched
again i shout for joy



Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding. Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it? Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof; When the morning stars sang together , and all the sons of God shouted for joyJob 38:4-7
