Captivating the Captive

Captivating the Captive

Enemies seem to surround us
All the day long.
Weapons of words and swords,
And bragging they are strong.
The God who sees my every sin,
Sees the sin of every man.
He shakes the enemy of his pride,
And leaves him unable to stand.
God captivates the captive,
And frees him from self.
God only is the stronghold.
God alone can help.
God is a refuge for the displaced,
And a shelter for the weak.
He gladly fellowships with
Those who will seek.
Put your trust in God,
Where hope is not futile.
He longs to hold and nurture
His created child.
