Upon the heartstrings God had made.
Along the shore, the moon glowed bright,
She walked alone, confused tonight.
Deceit hoped evil seeds to sow
Then yank her in its undertow,
This is my chance, I see she’s weak,
She’ll listen to the thoughts I speak.
Spewing lies, setting deadly traps,
He smirked as her frayed heartstrings snapped.
Cackles polluted the salty air--
Broken, she eased into his snare.
Shivering cold she was entranced,
Upon her heart the devil danced.
Your worth totals less than nil--
Her captor’s voice meant to kill.
When surging waters rose and hissed,
Truth grabbed His daughter from the mist,
Her saddened mind had snapped it seemed,
He came that she would be redeemed.
My child, He wept, I’ll bring you peace
Once heavy burdens you release.
She sobbed and shook beneath her shame.
I’ll love you always, He explained.
In faith restored by heaven’s power
She gave to God her darkest hour.
Drowsy waves brushed moonlit sands
The night she held her Father’s hands.
