Admonishment

Oh Israel I called you forth to listen
there can only be one master to the house
I redeemed you all to belong as brothers
as your service to me you have espoused 
 
Why do you seek control over the others
by example my purchase set you free
my will I am able to make known
when you are punished know it will come from me
 
I will be the one who gives directions
to the one who is my servant call
my will I am able to make known
it is to me that he will stand or fall
 
You raise yourselves like lions in the forest
tear into my servants like your prey
shortly I will settle the accounts here
pray your coins I will not take away
 
By example I set myself as servant
it was you who I washed and fed
I set a table just like a house slave
upon it was my own wine and bread
 
You were purchased from the wicked
were set as freemen in my tent
everything you use is my possession
you will account for how it has been spent
 
If you are unable to submit to my direction
know this you can be easily replaced
I will not allow you to destroy my building
I can from stone make flesh and you erased
 
Every servant is dependent on his master
and a master example I have set
there is only one path to true glory
the obeisance of love you do forget
 
I will use anyone I choose to
their service to me I'll not forget
I will raise or lower those deserving
if you refuse a decision you'll regret
 
Accept my admonishments directions
the gentle voice I have sent to you
you have publicly shamed my reputation
It is my example you must learn to do
 
My father appointed me the master
as a son in his own house I serve
I have sent my messengers before me
My arrival will dispense what you deserve
 
 
 
when I get hauled out of bed for this
I have to wonder to whom our Lord
has to have listen , those to whom this
is addressed you know the scriptures
 
Amen , come Lord Jesus

    beautiful poem, Michael. My favorite line is "t was you who I washed and fed" It really hit home with me and touched my heart. Lovely poem. Hugs, Catie :)

    Thanks you so much , and am happy for the inspiration , always a surprise to pen...my regards Michael , you'd probably like "Tender Heart" or "Frailty" better ...I think this one had a specific target...
