Pilgrim Song

Because of famine
in my desert Caanan
I have journeyed seeking
to a distant land

you are Goshen
my green garden
in you I feed
grow satisfied

when foes that pillage come
with flashing fears
slash glittering blades
in dark shades of terror
wielded by pouring hoards
of fang-fallen fright
blood-bound to enslave
bind me in chains
to exile drag

you are my Ramoth Gilead
to you I pleading flee
within your walls of refuge
there is peace

with love unwrought unyielding
your iron gates
protect those helpless ones
you gather gracefully

around your undying fire tonight
accept my grateful pilgrim song
