Climbing Rainbows

"Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all the living creatures of every kind on the earth." -Genesis 9:16

When the floods of darkness ooze through cracks,
When the dike has sprung a leak,
When evil, like a black cascade,
Comes tumbling o’er the mountain peaks,
Use your thumb to plug the hole
To hold to the barricade—
To be the barricade.

When the dike has failed, and all is lost,
There’s hope, as you have breath—
If you will stand against the parade
Your love can conquer even death!
Use your love to dam the flow
To be a barricade,
To build a barricade.

When darkness swirls about your legs
And threatens to consume,
Let the compass guide you as you wade,
With courage you can face your doom!
Use your faith to change the tide
To be a barricade,
To form a barricade.

Your sacrifices make a dam,
The sandbags which will stop the flow—
Over darkness love will have his way,
He forces back his every foe!
Make the choice to win the day,
To be the barricade,
To live a barricade!
