Divinely Appointed Liberty
The killers came for us at night
They figured to be ready for a fight
How little they knew
Of me and you
Yet they shut us off from flight
They raced in with fits of anger
Held stead only with a fury-filled anchor
We prayed out aloud
For a protective shroud
So we would have the blessing of the Angler
Our prayers went up and out
Hoping our Father would bless the devout
We sat and we waited
Praying our lives would be weighted
As He filled us with stout
A light beamed from the Divine
And a voice spoke from within the shine,
"My children, hold fast
By you they will pass."
So we kneeled down to the sign.
Our killers flew away;
The voice wouldn't permit them stay.
From there to the world
The message of peace unfurled;
Freedom shone through the fray.
