RHYMES AND REASONS
A Toast to the Promised Land
Celebrating the land of Israel

To the City of David.
To the City of Peace.
To a tiny nation of cities and towns
where our mighty God revealed Himself
in unique and awesome ways.

To a holy land
in whose soil grow the roots
of our timeless faith.

To the land
of milk and honey,
a land promised to Abraham,
glimpsed by Moses,
conquered by Joshua,
irrigated by the blood of disobedience,
vacated through exile,
yet populated again
by the providence of God
who left His footprints
in this sacred sand
and fingerprints of grace
on the lives of those He touched.

To the land
that has touched our lives
through what our eyes have seen,
what our ears have heard
and what our hearts have embraced.

Here's to a land
laced with the continuous thread
of redemption.
A land where it all began
and where it all will end.
