the sword in the hand

I will strengthen the arms of the king of Babylon, but the arms of Pharaoh shall fall. Then they shall know that I am the LORD, when I put my sword into the hand of the king of Babylon and he stretches it out against the land of Egypt.
Ezekiel 30:25

You who place Your sword
in the hand of one
to punish another
show your power
in what is done

You speak Your word
through a prophet's speech
to show Your strength
we see the length
of Your controlling reach

You send your sword
into the entire land
and judge sin's weight
upon those who hate
showing Your hand

You always prove Your word
as we receive it
experiencing the mystery
at real time history
and we must believe it
