THE ARK AT JERICHO
The sentries on the walls of Jericho
Would surely feel occasion to remark
On the procession they observed to go
Around them ‑ soldiers, Levites and the Ark.
Confiding in the structure of their wall,
They would not start to apprehend the power
Within that Ark to make their ramparts fall
And unbelievers of their city cower.
In outward weakness, but in secret might,
Those gathered to Christ's name now guarantee
The power of God will intervene to slight
Men's cities, and what they assume to be.
But, Lord, as Thou art cherished let me know
Within me this world's systems overthrow.
