O, How the Mighty have Fallen (a lament)

There is none like the Lord;
there is none besides you; there is no rock like our God.
O, how the mighty have fallen
in the midst of battle. I am distressed for you, my brothers.
Lord, why do you sleep?
Why does your redemption not change us in deeper ways?
Bind up the brokenhearted
and increase the passion for holiness in your leaders.

O, how the mighty have fallen
in the midst of battle. I am distressed for you, my brothers.
Where is the future for the Lord’s bride
when your shepherds support and indulge in indecency?
Bind up the brokenhearted
and increase the passion for holiness in your leaders.
Your bride is soiled and suffering,
What will you do about your shepherds who disdain purity?

Where is the future for the Lord’s bride
when your shepherds support and indulge in indecency?
Lord, why do you sleep?
Why does your redemption not change us in deeper ways?
Your bride is soiled and suffering
What will you do about your shepherds who disdain purity?
There is none like the Lord;
there is none besides you; there is no rock like our God.

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 daughter-in-laws and four grandchildren. I love to read, tell stories, and spend time in the wilderness.
