Samson IV

Tyranny believes in the power of man over God’s law.  True liberty believes in the guidance of God in effecting a lawful and truly just world over the evils of man.  Based in part on the Book of Judges:

Samson (IV)
by Michael Romani

The Philistines whispered of this story
About how Samson might be the Hebrews' glory
So much hope in this serious possibility
A hope that might lead to the people's capability

The capacity there for a people to rise up
A people who must be watched and kept from victory's cup
The Philistine king commands his son to obey
And to keep careful watch on these turning days

Though these are not the ways of the sacred steeple
Samson would fight as champion of his holy people
To help them shore up faith enough to be brave
Samson offered his all as he stood and freely gave

Samson, servant of the true and living God
Yields before nothing and no one
Even as he lives on the edge of being outlawed
Samson lived by his vows that the Father's will be done

Evil is defeated at his mighty hands
When he calls upon truth of God's holy command
His is the key of power and no tendered heresy
Even still has he chooses the ways of blessed mercy
