The Gideon Way

The Gideon Way

David Smith thebiblepoet, July 18, 2010

Scripture Text

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.
