Hold His Hand

by Heather Acquistapace

They come to hunt, to kill
To take any soul they will
No remoras or mercy found
As they hunt on, like a bloodhound
Laugh at sorrow, smile at blood
Closing in like a black watery flood
So vicious and unseen
Only One can intervene
They attack me day and night
Closing me in, shutting out the light
I fell, tears filled my eyes
Thinking no one could hear my cries
Then I heard a voice above the gloom
Saying I thought I destined for a tomb

“You lost faith in yourself
Darkness’ greatest wealth
I trust you will overcome
The bloody villains and scum
But you don’t
And say you won’t
Win the time-long war
Winning so much more
Why don’t you see
There is faith in Me

“I hold the oceans like a drop
I spin the planets like a top
I paint the oh so dazzling sky
And step over mountains so high
I see the now, then, and will be
And I have always lived eternally

“Why say you have no hope to win
And are covered with stains and sin
I am bigger than all of you
And what they say is not true
I have given you victory in My hand
Please have the will to fight and stand.”

They screamed He lies
They swarmed like flies
But I saw the love in His eye
And knew I had to do more than cry

I quickly reached out and took His hand
They pulled me down, daring me to stand
I felt fears
And cold tears
But I had to stand by His side
For I am His joy and pride
I kicked one
Stabbed a ton
Staggered, screamed,
Hit and leaned
They tried their best to hold me down
With strong ropes against the ground
But all in vane

Then quickly pain
Filled their dark hearts
Crashing all apart
They ran off every which way
Wishing He never did stay
For He forced them asunder
With power like thunder
He took my hand
And helped me stand
He kissed my head
Smiled lovingly and said

“Follow Me
To the sea
And the world beyond
The childhood pond
Hold My hand
So you can stand
I will set you free
It’s a gift, just ask Me”

I smiled and cried
As I stood at His side
Gladness filled my once dark heart
Knowing a new journey would start

And so I could stand
Holding onto His hand
But sometimes I let go
And fell to and fro
They would come for me
Like a hornet and bee
Always around
Not a sound
But when He was there
They hid with great care

So He held my hand
Across the burning sand
Over mountains souring
And icy rain pouring
He never left my side
Even at the highest tide
And He found faith in me
So I could live correctly

And I am able to strongly sand
Because I hold His nail-scared hand
