Heaven Looked Down
Heaven looked down
continents God surveyed,
then, the Lord, He did remark:
I made the fountain that filled the sea,
But whence that mountain in front of me?
I see its peak, there capped in white,
It shineth up, unto my sight.*
Angel flew down to see,
It sadly was, a mount of sin,
it did, His Holy Eyes,
cannot this scene abide,
* God, of course, knows everything but this way saying, reminds us of Genesis 18:21: I will go down and see whether they have done according to the cry that is come to me: or whether it be not so, that I may know. The story may also make one wonder if we will be chastised, for what has been done in our nation.
