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!

Foundational Doctrines (Hebrews 6:1-3)

To maturity let us be born,
The foundation is Jesus our Lord.
Here we build, and we hang all our hope,
Keep these ever in view as you grow:

All our works are as dung unto Him.
We are dead, and therefore must repent.

For by grace, through our faith, we are saved,
And that faith is a gift that God gave.

There are baptisms given by God:
Those of water, and fire, and blood.

The assembly of saints in His church,
Is essential to grow in His word.

Every man will be raised from the dead,
All those mortal immortal instead.

They’ll be judged by eternal decree,
To be punished, or paradise see.

Reason (Proverbs 29:7)

Since God is slow to judge,
He bears no threat to me,
I see no consequence,
There is no law I see,
No power but what’s mine,
Except the law of might,
The power of the sword,
And winning makes it right.
I’ll let my heart be glad,
And take those things I need,
If God had loved the weak,
He wouldn’t make them sheep.
For I may wield the rod,
It will not fall on me,
I choose what I may have,
In my sagacity.
I am forever right.
How dare you question me!
The Father wont come home,
He judges not, as me.
For I have helped the poor,
Who payed their dues to me,
I only took the wealth,
Of those who were to weak.
I wont reprove my son,
I want to hep him see,
The rod would do him hurt;
Let him then be as me.
