(PSALM 2) ( Acts 4:25-26) RAGE

Why do the nations

Run like wild horses

Trampling the grass

Whinnying and neighing

A ruckus

Proud to be free

To be free

A better translation perhaps

For psalm two

The root word in Hebrew

For rage


The snorting of horses

But what use is a horse

That runs free

To beat down the vineyard

And wheat field

To answer to no master

To be free

Of what use is the horse

In acts

After the wondrous events

Of the ascension

The election of Matthias


And Peter’s sermon

The church set out

To make society better

The poor were fed

The sick were consoled

The widow was befriended

The work was done with a happy face

No gloomy Christians there

They were useful

They had accepted

The bridle of Christ

They were useful

The nations may rage

As wild horses will

But eventually

They will be broken

God’s will

Will be done

And the horse will come

At its masters call
