Romans 13: Government and Election

As darkness whelms your soul,
And evil swallows all,
Yet God is in control,
And He wont let us fall.
The kings of every place,
The Lord established there,
To demonstrate His grace,
And bring His love to bear.
For all He has ordained,
And all is for His glory.
All to exalt His name,
And all to tell His story.
The government He gave,
A tool to bear His law,
Established not to save,
For everyone is flawed.
So do not bow to fear,
When evil men take reign.
For God is ever near,
Your fear of Him maintain.
You trust, then, not in man,
No fear of man, the same.
But in the Gospel stand,
Proclaiming Jesus’ name.
Don’t compromise the right,
And lose your witness here.
For who would heed your light,
If you’re supporting fear?
Support the cause of Christ!
The Gospel full pursuit.
Why sell your vote and rights,
For those who hate the truth?
But love your enemy,
And pray to God for them.
Denounce idolatry,
Not glossing over sin.
But see the Hand of God,
The Guider of all ends,
His mercy ever broad,
For this His arm extends.
When tribulation reigns,
Our hope is still in Him.
When others curse His name,
And glory in their sin,
When we are killed and raped,
And hunted night and day,
When we are all debased:
Yet Jesus still holds sway.
The kingdoms of the earth,
Are nothing in His sight,
But trials given birth,
To demonstrate His might.
For fire when it burns,
The gold will purify,
And through it we will learn,
How Christians ought to die.
Then let me herald this:
That Christ is ever king.
And I am always His,
His blood has made me clean.
Yes, I would die for Him,
And not for presidents,
My trust is not in them,
But for my Savior bent.

  1. Here’s some things to keep in mind as we vote tomorrow:
    God is always in control.
    God uses everything to glorify His name.We must not give in to fear.
    We must not compromise our witness for Christ.
    We must love our neighbors.
    Put your trust in Jesus’s finished work for us, not in political rulers.
