Finish Well Like Nehemiah ( by Fenny West)

Finish Well like Nehemiah

Finish well like Nehemiah,
Who caught the vision,
Began with passionate prayer;
Became a great champion.

Finish well like Nehemiah
Who obtained the king’s favour
And ignored the “Nay Sayers”
And pressed on with fervour.

Finish well like Nehemiah
Who defied opposition
Became stronger and stronger
And obtained a great promotion.

Finish well like Nehemiah
Who despite being maligned
Grew stronger and stronger
Until his destiny was fulfilled.

Finish well like Nehemiah
Who rose above blackmail
Slipped through sewer and mire,
Finished the wall and was hailed.

4 So it was , when I heard these words , that I sat down and wept , and mourned for many days; I was fasting and praying before the God of heaven.
8 and a letter to Asaph the keeper of the king’s forest , that He must give me timber to make beams for the gates of the citadel which pertains to the temple , for the city wall , and for the house that I will occupy.” And the king granted them to me according to the good hand of my God upon me.

The Wall Defended Against Enemies  1 But it so happened , when Sanballat heard that we were rebuilding the wall , that He was furious and very indignant , and mocked the Jews.
The Wall Completed 
15 So the wall was finished on the twenty-fifth day of Elul , in fifty-two days.
