Ascend the Mountain

Ascend the mountain,
Those of clean hands and pure hearts;
Reach His Holy place,
Receive blessing from the Lord:
The Saviour’s vindication

written in response to today’s prompt – “clean” – at the Daily Post, and inspired by Psalm 24:3-5Psalm 24:3-5

I Shall Arise

vanish dark night,
end your sojourn;
succumb you stars
to the echoes
of the Creator’s whisper;
set Moon, you lesser light,
give way to the glorious Sun;
come silence, still my heart,
claim your hollow victory;
for when the dawn comes,
I shall arise
