He stands firm till the end

Very strong, but not his strength, his Lord’s

When victory is seated on the throne,

Triumph strides through the streets of Jerusalem,

He stands and waits with all the others, as a true disciple

Bows low to the ground as the Holy One passes,

Eyes not worthy to behold the Majesty,

Lord of his mercy

Healer of all lepers

Lord of his life.

The battles fought were difficult

The dark lord more crafty, more vicious

His ruthless, fierce army more tenacious

Relentless treachery until the final crushing beneath the heel,

Foot of the Sovereign One upon the neck and head.

Battle weary as a worn out rag;

Then, a hand places a cup of water to the dry lips

A few drops that revive

A few sips that strengthen

A final drink that enflames eternal zeal and righteous passion

As he stands once again and charges out one last time

To finish his part of the kingdom work

The King always in sight

His Lord always close at hand.  


About Gary Bertnick

I was a Minnesota teenager in the late 1960's. I was drafted into the military after an intense time at an engineering school. As a graduate chemical engineer and former athlete, I became a Marine Corps private. The Lord spoke to me through a friend while visiting Rapid City,S.D. My true discipleship began in Southern California and was boosted through association with Morris Cerullo Ministry and others. I fed upon the Scriptures and have learned to be led by the Holy Spirit. I know what the fear of the Lord is. What I write is done to honor the Lord and to touch the lives of those who know Him as well as those who should.
