Such Are These Rocks
We drove around round hills
And mountains. Then I saw it,
The high stone cliffs of the Notch.
I did not yet know its crack nearby.
The Cave of the Winds holds ice
When there is none outside.
I did not yet know the Bible,
That Christ is a Rock
That is higher than I (Psalm 61:2).
We did see many there
And walked around the rocks.
I would later hike to Mount Mansfield's chin.
Then at that height Vermont
Is there spread out before us
Below Mount Mansfield's tundra.
And we then gaze about
At Vermont stretching to the Lake,
But today it was the Notch.
How suddenly it's there.
One drives around those hills
And then--Behold! ...Those rocks.
After seeing those rocks of great height
And walking to the chin of the mountain,
I went to Bible study
and heard of Christ.
And stood in awe of the Rock
That followed Israel, which was Christ (1 Corinthians 10.4).
Those Bible studies taught many.
We trudged through sacred text
Stopped and looked at much.
I worship the Lord
For this Rock is my life (Colossians 3.1-3).
This Rock will appear
And I will appear with Him in glory.
All those other rocks
Are just handsome cold stone.
