Lord, bow Your heavens, in might descend, come touch the hills the mountains rend,
And they shall smoke and flame.
As arrows send Your lightning out, to put Your enemies to rout,
And fill Your foes with shame.
Oh, how we yearn for peace—but today we are reminded that the battle rages on. In some ways this is a violent set of hymns that mirrors a violent set of Scripture passages. We read and sing about war, dragons, death, fury, and blood! Yet, in the midst of all this the Lord promises His church that “her warfare is over.” Isaiah cries “comfort, comfort, my people” (Isaiah 40) and we sing that in the presence of the Lord we find comfort even in the midst of affliction. How can this be unless the Lord keeps us steadfast, remains our battle shield, and wins the victory over our enemy? He is almighty to save, and His great congregation will forever sing of the triumph of our King! —Nathan
