Psalm 118

Did you save me, Lord?

When the dog attacked,
Tearing flesh from flesh,
Spilling blood from veins,
And tears from eyes...

You sent a neighbour,
To fight off the beast,
To save a life.

But, did you save me Lord?

When the beast of burden,
Startled from docility,
Moved with sudden violence,
And broke a body...

You sent a Son,
To fight off the Beast,
To save a soul.

But, did you save me Lord?

When the beasts attack,
Clenching talons of fear,
Baring poison-tipped fangs,
To shred hope...

You send Your Spirit,
To fight off the Beast,
To save my soul.

Did you save me, Lord?

You do.
