Although the introduction of Moses to his swan song is as lovely as it is lyrical, there is good reason to believe Moses was speaking more of his desire that his words be effective and exert a positive influence on the people of God than he was their sheer poetic beauty. Nonetheless, the song of Moses is Hebrew poetry and like so much of the wisdom literature and the Psalms, is as instructive as it is beautiful, lofty, and inspiring.
May the bits and pieces of this English poetry and occasional prose refresh, encourage, and enlighten those who are striving, with the help of the Spirit, to make The Story part of their own life’s story.
