Immanuel

Thunder clouds loom
Threatening, enveloping
Injured children in fear crouch down
Fear of death consumes God’s chosen

Darkness surrounds the righteous
Clouds suffocate the children
A church quakes and reels
People are lost
Where are you O God

Lightning fractures the sky
Hail batters the ground
Rocks fail, earth splits
Edifices fall
Have you forsaken us O God

As all else is reeling
A cross stands true
Testament to love
Foundational; enduring
God bursting through

A rising church
Children healed
Resurrection in action
New Faith, new life
Immanuel, God is here
