      Divisions
Shirley Malmgren

Divisions hurt...
I've seen whole families torn apart
by deep incisions on the heart
that left the scars that through the years
caused broken lives and bitter tears.

Divisions hurt...
I saw into the Father's heart
bruised by Christ's Body torn apart,
two thousand years of wars it fought
against its own, upon itself,
ignoring Father's Royal Command
to love, in unity to stand
against the enemy of man.

Divisions hurt...
For by her door are scattered bones
of those who lived and died alone
because the ones called forth to heal
were fighting on some battlefield.

But God will have the final say.
He's moving, shaking things today,
and every man-made wall will fall
so Jesus can be lifted up
the Lord of Lords and King of all.
