The Gideon Way
David Smith thebiblepoet, July 18, 2010
Inspired by Judges 7:20 And the three companies blew the trumpets, and brake the pitchers, and held the lamps in their left hands, and the trumpets in their right hands to blow withal: and they cried, The sword of the LORD, and of Gideon.
The battle is the LORD’s; with Gideon that day
As the broken vessels, the light on great display
As they blew the trumpets, God’s verbal beckoning call
And the sword of the Spirit, the enemy did surely fall
O what a picture of the Living Christ today;
The trumpet, the Word of God, the command on great display
O the earthen vessel, ageing mortal man
To only have it broken for God’s light to take the stand.
And the Sword of the Spirit which is the word of God
O the faith in Christ; the cross we can applaud
Thanks be to the Gospel, the finished work complete
At the Cross of Calvary, Victory, at Jesus’ feet.
