Striking the Rock

Striking the Rock

     by Joe S. Martinez


The biblical account of Moses,

The Lord's appointed man

In Numbers, Chapter Twenty

Shows how he raised his hand


This time he did not bless God's people

This time he struck the Rock

To his dismay, he felt the pain

Of this, his greatest shock


You see, the Rock was Christ the Lord

Who took that angry blow

With this I see the grief I've caused

Before, I didn't know


And though the love my Savior gives me

Has ever been the same

Now I see how our sins can hurt him

That we've no one else to blame


I had never before imagined

What our sins and faults can do

That they strike the One most precious

The One who's kind and true


Dear Lord, help me love and obey you

To stay close and not depart

For if I strike you again, as I have in the past

It will surely break my heart
