Knight of Faith!

I am re-blogging the above link because, to be honest,  the excerpts of Kirkegaard put my writing abilities in their proper place; inspired humility!

Thankfully I don’t play hockey because now I understand what it means to be blindsided by a crosscheck. Yet, because of the game, I the rookie… love the game and will develop my peripheral vision to be ready for  from future onslaughts! So just as the “swoosh” of my Nike shoes remind me, “Let’s do this!”

Knight of Faith

O’ Hero, Knight of faith,
Keeper of the flame,
Rescuerer of oppressed,
Free me from my shame.
Hear me call Your Name.

Days of fear and darkness,
Crowd in shadowed doubt,
Hours of isolation,
Eclipse the sun in blackout,
Blinding even devout.

Long nights of the soul,
Covered in this soot,
Moaning humiliation,
Rotting death is all that’s smelt,
In captives and myself.

Persecution never ends,
Hate will find its way,
For Evil serves one master,
Prowling every nation,
Causing Faith’s ablation.

Still Yahweh knits a remnant,
Within chosen yarns,
A weave of promised colors,
To save through His anointed,
Messiah Ben David.

O’ Knight of Faith rescue me,
From my night of faith,
Guns now push me to a door,
Smiling evil welcomes me,
Knight of Faith come set me free!Gasping now amidst the gas,
In life’s final glimpse,
I see a familiar face,
I remember Your Name,
Knight of Faith, for me you finally came.

Written during WW2, on the wall of a cellar, by a Jew in the Cologne concentration camp.

“I believe in the sun
even when it is not shining
And I believe in love,
even when there’s no one there.
And I believe in God,
even when he is silent.

I believe through any trial,
there is always a way
But sometimes in this suffering
and hopeless despair
My heart cries for shelter,
to know someone’s there
But a voice rises within me, saying hold on
my child, I’ll give you strength,
I’ll give you hope. Just stay a little while.

I believe in the sun
even when it is not shining
And I believe in love
even when there’s no one there
But I believe in God
even when he is silent
I believe through any trial
there is always a way.

May there someday be sunshine
May there someday be happiness
May there someday be love
May there someday be peace….”
