To the Wilderness and Beyond

Beyond the destruction, a journey to the south
The bearing of a promised child
Unto Abraham and Sarah, within their latter stage
The joy of Isaac
An awesome wonder
Hagar and son, of company within the tent
In playful sight, both sons adjoined
A jubilant feast, with Ishmael unkind, merriment declined
The yearning of honour, attention be sought
An imminent request, send them away
Instructions of sorrow, Abraham obliged
Mother and son to voyage on
Seek the place where you belong
Replenishing supplies
A radiant sunrise, in the land of Egypt
Ye to wonder to the wilderness
Walking on empty, thirsty and faint
Wander no father
Suffering son
Weeping in solitude, fearful afraid
God heard the cry of pain
Draw to the spring, water arise
Be now filled, I shall provide
Your son shall live, grow and thrive
Strength shall arise, wait upon the Lord
