Psalm 83 — As the Fire Burns
An English Sonnet
The wicked plot against Your people, God,
They glorify themselves and make a stink,
Conspiring that we should be outlawed
For who we are and how we feel and think.
Do not keep silent, God, in this long night!
Oh come to our defense; do not delay,
For they will not give ground without a fight.
God, let them be as chaff that blows away
And, as the fire blazes through the trees,
