jonathan“Ulay.” Hebrew for “perhaps.”
Thus said Jonathan
To his armor bearer.
“Let’s take a chance.”

“Ulay.” It may be
That God will favor
Our courage and trust
And join us in our venture.

“Ulay.” It may be
That our enemy will be weak,
And though more numerous than us,
Will be overcome by our boldness.

“Ulay.” It may be
That no greater opportunity will
Arise than this which presents to us
And offers possible victory.

“Ulay.” A world of possibilities
Pledged by a God
Who can do more than
We ask or imagine.

“Ulay.” Only for the
Faithful and audacious
Willing to step out
On an invisible ledge and trust God.
