Can You Hear?
Can you hear the tender groan
of creatures not made right?
The longing for the Perfect One to come
Every creature hopes
Upon the return of the Dawn of Day
And pants in hope for the cosmos
Camel bleats a tune
As she plods through the sands
"Behold all things shall be new"
Penguin chants in the midst of the ice
Cradling his babe between his feet
"Come soon O King of the free"
Bear hums along
Back scraping against a cedar
"Restore O God, come restore"
Salmon swims along
Avoiding dams of man
"Let us see your glory stretched upon the sea" The groan of creation longs
But not in a doomed desire
For the King of Ages sings the song of renewal
"Behold I am coming
The First and The Last Creation bow before me
For I will come, restore my creatures
And all Adam left in bondage
For creation I declared was good
Still belongs to me
And I came first to reconcile
Through my very body
Now await with hope
And groan a little more still
For I am worthy
Behold I am coming soon"
