The Flag

Hoisted high above the ground Floating in the gentle breeze Colors and symbols depict a message That some reject, but others please Be it local or in a foreign land Violence or peace it can incite Some may regard it nonchalent But others defend, with all their might It's the mouthpiece and sounding board Of what is in the human heart Of those who raise it to it's perch As their position they seek to impart Yes, - the flag can easily define How we view, life, liberty and death Many seek to extol it's virtue Guarding it, until their final breath Isaiah spoke of lifting a banner It draped over Solomon with love Should it not be the guiding force Symbolizing, as a peaceful dove So, let the Christian hoist it high In action, word and deed Always portraying Christ as King May God grant this to be our creed Colan L Hiatt = 08-03-15 © All Rights Reserved
