Oregon Beach Panorama

When I Prayed (James Watkins)


When I prayed

There was lightning in heaven,

I stood upon oceans,

Saw seas swell and roar,

Nations moved, and

Life changed forever.


When I spoke

Angels flew swiftly

To careful cause-

Loosed in lofty height

To conquer and complete

As they found purpose

In being.


Worlds bent,

Time fractured at reveled call,

Curse reversed,

Plans unfolded,

Death contained,

And mountains shaken,

Then moved.


When I listened,

I heard the clarion-

Clear and conquering-

Veils of time rent

And all tribes gathering,

In slow movement

Of tears and triumph,

As lost, faltering death

Struck its last feeble blow.


Went I bowed, hope began.

Change kindled,

And paths were clear before me.

Freedom sprung forth,

Dark departed,

And doorways long closed

Became the challenge

Of one faithful step

Upon another

On highways of liquid light.
