A river in your soul flows through
You, o Man of God.
Do not judge the little ones in the faith.
Take the hint, and over it
Let the channel in your heart
Flow toward God.
Let not my rebuke fall on deaf ears…
For the rumor you heard was false.
I had not prevented any from walking in.
I had… as it were.. advised them not to walk in.
Then, I had said to them,
When I saw them about to walk in,
“If the preacher repented, tell me
“And I shall sit among them.”
Those you saw were witches
The very ones who hate my soul.
I am sorry for yelling.
It is why I walked away.
I could not hold my tongue
O mighty river.
Let your flowing loch
Pour out into an ocean of fruit.
Let not your name be of the mighty rivers of Tyre
But let your name be Harper Church.
I love you.
And thank you for your blessing…
Now I give you a blessing:
Your name is Harper Church.
No longer is it “Trespasser”
For if you repent
I shall repent
O my love,
My faithful one
Who has fed the multitudes with good bread.
“Do not forsake me!
And I will not forsake you,”
Says my LORD.
Yet, remember your first love
O Ephesus, that way your lamp-stand is not removed!
Test my words.
If there be any lacking,
Then rebuke me.
I shall listen…
For you should have said,
“Bring with you another witness,”
And then I would have been silent.
