Mountains quake and people tremble
at the moment of the Lord,
at the presence of God's Spirit,
sharper than a two-edged sword.

Yet such language seems archaic,
out of fashion, out of time;
talk of God just seems discordant,
lacking reason cannot chime.

Is there really any wonder
why our God seems so remote,
when our language and our culture
make the words so hard to quote.

Verse 4 follows



Andrew Pratt (born 1948)
