Rescued

From Blog10


Lost and broken, dead, undone,
I was Satan's evil son,
Headed to a sinner's grave:
I myself could never save.

But the Lord looked down to me
And in mercy set me free.
Sacrificing his dear Son,
He my victory has won.

He has delivered us from the domain of darkness
and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son,
in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

--Colossians 1:13-14

The photo that accompanies your poem, and the poem itself, reminds me of Psalm 124:

If Yahweh had not been on our side
—let Israel repeat it—
if Yahweh had not been on our side
when they attacked us,
they would have swallowed us alive
and burnt us to death in their rage.

The waters would have closed over us,
the torrent have swept us away,
either would have drowned us
in their turbulent waves.

Blessed be Yahweh who did not let us fall
a victim to those teeth,
who let us escape like birds
from the fowler's net.

He tore the net
and we escaped;

our help is in the name of Yahweh,
who made heaven and earth.
