Unseen Angels

by Jim Rapp
A Presence Revealed by Passing Through
a Prism
(Look, I am with you always. - Jesus)

Eldila inform us of your presence Lord,
coming, as they do, in rainbow radiance,
splashing colors on ceiling, walls and floor,
urging us to offer You our affiance.

Offer it to you, we do, our unseen Lord.
You ever seek a prism that reveals
to our unseeing eyes the flaming sword
our unseen Lord, in service to us, wields.

My wife and I call the rainbow splashes from a crystal hanging in our eastern window Eldila. They serve as reminders of God’s presence.
