A Sister’s Lament

Rejoice, Grieving One

weep, groan

Rejoice, oh Righteous Wronged

howl, rage

Rejoice, Image Bearer

with arms outstretched for rescue

Rejoice, Survivor

standing through the pain

Rejoice, Living One


Yahweh’s own breath fills the tormented

draws His loved one in

nurses the bruises

sustains His own

The God who sees wept.

He will be satisfied.


Oh, you desperate

The battle for the beloved is the Lord’s.

Evil will not carry away His cherished one

Not then

Not now.

Praise Him.

Praise Him.

Praise Him.

The storm is passing over.
