Hunger drives a nation, a tribe
Hunger drives a soul,
While thirst for truth seen by the world
As a weakness, a madness, mental illness at best;
Neighbors turn their eyes
Families shake their heads
Wonder outloud, try to understand
Why the sudden turn
Rejection of their world, its ways.
Why the obsession over an old book
And constant prayers lifted into the sky where UFO’s travel;
Words written so long ago by Jews
Approved by old men gathered
Assembled, edited by a Council of elders,
What life can it give! What light?
But, the real treasure remains hidden in the mysterious field
The Spirit of God always ready to reveal
Each day, each step of the narrow road
Spirit of life always poised to reveal;
One bite of bread multiplied into to an eternal feast
Prized discovery unfolds more discovery that only grows
Knowledge within the greatest knowledge
Life matures into an even greater life.
And the righteous hunger grows
Desire for God, and discipline grow
Delight in God, delight in His word
Indescribable gifts of wisdom and knowledge,
The Spirit of Messiah breathes within
We see and hear, and know.
More and more as we walk this path
God of love rests in thoughts and prayers
In dreams and visions;
As we read each day, we feed even more
Heaven’s daily food,
Heaven’s Kingdom bread!
A child of God meets hatred with love,
The angry world confronts us
But sees only in our eyes, deep pools of mysterious peace,
And they become angrier.
