Dona nobis pacem.

“He who rules over men righteously,
Who rules in the fear of God,
Is as the light of the morning when the sun rises,
A morning without clouds,
When the tender grass springs out of the earth,
Through sunshine after rain.”

The words of a poet-shepherd-king from David’s last song, 2 Samuel 23:3b,4.

No, but maybe I should.

Actually, part of verse 4 was in the Daily Light reading this morning, and it struck me as beautiful poetry, so I looked it up and read it in context.

Lovely day to you. Mom

Re: No, but maybe I should.

there is a pretty decent recording of an all-state group singing that song somewhere in the abyss of my old mp3 collection. its a pretty nifty song. i would recommend looking it up.

I’ve always said, never trust a leader who doesn’t think he answers to someone higher up the line. This backs it up nicely.

Wonderful verse. Thanks for posting it.

You’re welcome!

Those words just sang their way straight to my soul this morning, so I thought I’d release the song into cyberville. Glad it reached your ears. EZ
