Affliction of Assyria

The sun had grown dark on that fearful day
When Rabshakah, the Assyrian entered the fray;
Their armor and weapons glittered like gold
As they surged ’cross the plains to storm Israel’s fold.

But Hezekiah the king sought the Lord in prayer
To beseech God Almighty, His mercy to share;
The Lord would respond, then gave His command
To smite the Assyrian and deliver the land.

The Assyrian hordes were filled with flawed pride
Their faith in false gods, their treacherous guide;
They mounted their horses to charge for the gain
In their lust for the power that would end in pain

For the angel of death smote Sennacherib’s camp
And the fires of war were put out like a lamp;
The fields of green grass were transformed to a flood
That flowed on the ground as rivers of blood.

The legions lay dead with their eyes opened wide
And the host of their horses lay dead at their side;
The wind stole their cry from the pride of their breath
And gave its revenge in the silence of death.

The sons and the wives in their sorrow now weep
For the sickle of death had a harvest to reap;
The battle was won by the grace of the Lord
Who humbles the proud with the truth of His Word.

Isaiah 36 and 37

Lizzy you never disappoint me you rhyme with excellence as always. Sorry I have been gone from the soup for so long. Facebook is so addicting and so is youtube. I haven't writen in so long. I think it's the absence of heart ache. It probably won't last long.

Oh my Elizabeth...This is absolutely a stunning and compelling account of those two chapters of Isaiah, which along with the Book of Job are by far my favorite books in The Bible...The fact that Isaiah prophesies the birth of Jesus and the Thousand Year Reign is more than my small, feeble mind can comprehend...Much Love sent to you - Tim
