Walk with God (Hebrews 11:5-6)

We will see the Lord descend,
With myriads of stars,
To bring His justice in the end,
Of each ungodly heart:
The rebels, revelers-in-sin,
Are cast to outer-dark.

So in this climax of His plan,
If you would walk with Him,
Believe what He’s revealed to man,
Turn holiness from sin.
By faith you live and seek His plan,
And you’ll bring joy to Him.

So seek out every word He said,
And search His scriptures well.
And learn to know Him as your head,
Call out those who rebel.
Mark how He keeps each promise said,
How we are saved from Hell.

The Hands of Judgment (Hebrews 10:23-31)

Hold to the promise we hope in,
Which can not be bended or broken.
Relentlessly hold the confession,
For it’s your most costly possession.
The One who has promised is certain,
And nothing can ever deter Him.

Take cognizance of one another,
To aid in defending your brother.
Unto Godly righteousness guiding,
Not shirking, forsaking, or hiding.
Exhort to the truth ever clearer,
As God’s day of judgment grows nearer.

If you willingly sin not believing,
Though a full knowledge you are receiving,
You’ve forsaken the grace you were given,
There’s no sacrifice left to be given.
But there’s fire prepared for the scoffer,
And wrath that is whetted to slaughter.

Oh tremble before Jesus’ anger!
His judgment is dreadful in danger.
His hands which will harrow the nation,
Are our only hope of salvation:
By those hands every rebel will perish,
By those hands we are lovingly cherished.

No Bettter Covenant (Hebrews 8:10-13)

The Lord will write His law upon our minds,
And on our hearts His holy words inscribe.
And He will be to us a God indeed,
And we will be His kin, His holy seed.
And we’ll no longer urge our brothers, “Start,
To learn of God.” For we’ll know Him by heart.

This covenant the Lord will bring to pass,
By graciousness to our unrighteousness.
For He has paid the price that we deserve,
With justice pacified as grace is served.
He wipes our guilt off of His slate,
Remembers naught, for His own mercy’s sake.

Now cling unto this covenant of grace,
For the old covenant has been displaced,
As were the Canaanites thrust from the land,
To bring the promise God gave Abraham.
Do you not see the marvelous gift this is?
There is no better covenant than this!
