Honey In The Rock

It is said that the shepherds of Judea

When faced with sickly sheep some
Use the ever present resource around
Looming hills to cure sheep without pills
The hills have curative limestone
Yet sheep are willing to taste bare rock
So the shepherds place syrupy honey
On the rocks and sheep lick with glee
Inadvertently tongue-tasting the rock
And are healed of their maladies
Thus we sheep of the Great Shepherd
Can come to the Rock for succour
His rich promises draw us to Him
The Word transforms our sin-sick souls
O combination of sweetness and Light
Shelter in storm and covert for the weary
The honey is a bait to get you in the gate
If you have tasted that Lord is gracious
You will walk in wholesomeness of new life
