WHO IS HE THEN?

WHO MEASURES THE ARM SPAN OF GOD?
WHO COUNTS HIS ARMS?
WHO DETERMINES THE SPRING POWER IN HIS LEGS?
WHO GRASPS THE SENSITIVITY OF HIS FINGERTIPS?
WHO INTERPRETS HIS HEARTBEAT – WHO KNOWS THE RHYTHM?

SWEAT FROM HIS FOREHEAD DRIPS THE OCEANS FULL
HIGH SPANS HIS STATURE –
HIS SHOULDERS STRETCH OPEN THE ATMOSPHERE!

WHO LOOKS INTO HIS INDESCRIBABLE EYES?
WHO TOUCHES THE SOFTNESS OF HIS BEARD?
WHO DESIGNS THE “CURVATURE” OF HIS NOSE?
WHO EXPERIENCES THE SWEETNESS OF HIS LOVELY FRAGRANCE?
WHO REALISES HIS WARM LOVE-GLOW?
WHO WILL PRESCRIBE HIS MIND?
WHO WILL HOIST HIS SAILS, TAKE THE HELM – DETERMINE HIS WAYS?

SHALL HE TURN AWAY THE PALMS OF HIS HANDS FROM YOU, ISRAEL?
SHALL HE CAST YOU INTO THE TRENCH OF YOUR ENEMY
OR SHALL HE NOT ALTER THE TRENCH WITH HIS FINGER
AND HURL YOUR ENEMY THEREIN?
SHALL HE EXALT YOUR ENEMY ABOVE YOU
OR SHALL HE NOT LET THEM PERISH IN THE ABYSS?
WHO CAN HOLD GROUND AGAINST THE GOD OF ISRAEL?
WHO WILL OPEN HIS EYELID TO BEHOLD HIS GLORY?

WHO IS LIKE YOU; WHO IS INDEED LIKE YOU?
TO YOUR BEING ARE NO LIMITS...
