Voices of Antiquity

Have you heard the voices of antiquity
from Moses, of Gods laws to live by
Have you heard the song of Solomon
of love greater than man can conceive

Have you heard the whispering sound
of silence, spirit filling Elijah’s soul
Have you heard the voice of wisdom
crying out to us to hear her knowledge

We have heard Gabriel’s angelic song
to Mary in grace, of divinity to come
We have heard John deep in the desert
shouting out for us to make way a path

We have heard Jesus at the sea of Galilee
tell us truths of how to live in harmony
We have heard a voice from heaven
bringing loving peace into our hearts

Let it’s love roll like distant thunder
For we are all disciples voices for our Lord

We have a contemporary Christian musician group at our church. In a conversation, I suggested I would think about a song about them.  As I opened my Bible to find a voice that spoke to me it was like each page was shouting “here I am”.
