The Trees of the Field Shall Clasp Their Hands

We are meeting in a Danish Pentecostal building today for our ecumenical church planting conference. About 60 of us, all enjoying each others company and making fun of ourselves. There are Baptists here, and Lutherans, Penties, Charasmatics, house church, emerging church, Reformed . .. which reminds of me of a verse (based on Isaiah 55:12) I have been composing in my mind for the Reformation songbook:

You shall go out with austerity

and be led forth with sobriety

The mountains and the hills shall break out their notebooks

There’ll be sermons of Paul

And all the trees of the field

shall clasp, shall clasp their hands.

And all the trees of the field shall clasp their hands

The trees of the field shall clasp their hands

The trees of the field shall clasp their hands

While you go out with . . . [a joyful and yet restrained demeanor?]

ok – I am still working on the last word. Let me know if you think of something. And if anyone ever gets around to writing a Reformation Bible, then order me a Red Letter Edition – there’s nothing like having the words of the Apostle Paul highlighted in red for easy viewing and memorization.
