Recalling Israel’s rebirth 60 years ago
In May of 1948
the Promised Land became a state
as exiled Jews (dispersed) returned
reclaiming what God gave.
From nations of the world they came
united by a common aim.
To build a home and make a life
where milk and honey flow.
It was a second Exodus.
that gave The Jews good cause to trust
a gracious God who keeps His word
while doubters stand amazed.
God used David Ben Gurion
to call the sons of Abraham
back to The Land where faith was born
and Isaac was redeemed.
It truly was a miracle
and in this month we’d best recall
that those who pray for Israel’s peace
will know God’s sweet shalom.
