Quandary and Habakkuk



(The breakthrough of Habakkuk’s vision)

It will tarry

Wait for it

But I will surely see

The rising of

A righteous God

To set the captives free.

He rolls right o’er

The war-horse rage

The rivers

And the waves

Pays back in full

For robbery

And from the godless saves.

I struggle

With each passing month

I plead, I plod, I pine

How long will evil

Hold the day?

With idols

And with wine?

And who can halt

Momentum dark

Their rape and gluttons’ will?

The Lord sees

From His Holy Mount

Let all the earth be still.

And we are chastened

By the blows

Remembering better days

When holy walk

And holy words

Filled each Jew’s heart

With praise.

Oh will we ever laugh again

And trust whate’er befall?

The Lord who sanctifies

The meek

Will soon revive us all.
