Reflections on Genesis 12-23: Abraham and Sarah

“Sarah”

From land to Land we chose to roam,
Following visions, voices, and hope.
We built many altars, spent our share of grace.
Still on our minds uncertainty weighs.
 
Sarah,
Through what we’ve come,
For all we’ve seen,
I could never lose belief.

I gave you away, two times a lie.
You went without question, provocation, or fight.
Riches you brought upon each return.
In scandal and fear, we both knew rebirth.

Sarah,
Through it all we’ve known
In the dark has grown,
A fair glimmer of light.

We’ll hold on. We’ll hold on!
Through barrenness in a barren Land.
First the womb, and then the sand,
Life will come! Life will come!
