By Blood and By Fire by Raymond A. Foss

The covenant sealed, honoring his faith
by the blood of the sacrifice
animals given, offered to God
consummated by the creator
by fire, passing between the halves
God and man in covenant
by blood and by fire

Promises of land,
of an inheritance in the future
of heirs to great to number
more than the stars in the night sky
theirs forever, if they are faithful
following his example
trusting in God
in the signs before our eyes.
