School Shootings (A Lament)

Lord Jesus Christ Son of God, have mercy on me a sinner.

The voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness;
The Lord shakes the Wilderness of America.
Children have been murdered at a school in Florida.
Do not keep silent, O God! Do not hold your peace
And do not be still, O God!
O that the metal, plastic, and composite material
would be melted and ground down into seesaws and merry-go-rounds.

Children have been murdered at a school in Florida.
Defenders of weapons and idolaters of the sword do not weep
Nor sit in ashes.
O that the metal, plastic, and composite material
would be melted and ground down into seesaws and merry-go-rounds.
Come now, and let us reason together
Says the Lord,
Though your sins are like children’s blood,
they shall be as white as snow.

Defenders of weapons and idolaters of the sword do not weep
Nor sit in ashes.
Do not keep silent, O God! Do not hold your peace
And do not be still, O God!
Come now, and let us reason together
Says the Lord,
Though your sins are like children’s blood,
They shall be as white as snow.
The voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness;
The Lord shakes the Wilderness of America.

About Joe Chambers

I am the beloved of the Most High God. I am an avid reader and writer and have been a continuous learner since my college studies in Ancient Literature and English. I live at the base of Mount Princeton in the Colorado Rockies with my wife of over three decades. I believe I have been put here to tell people that God is not mad at them and to show them the way Home. I am the father of three sons, three beautiful daughters-in-law and four grandchildren. I love to read, tell stories, and spend time in the wilderness.
