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.

In the Here and Now (Psalm 37:7-15)

In the here and now,
While wicked men yet cheat and bribe,
While government officials lie,
While widows yet for justice cry,
Still labor for the Lord.

In the here and now,
Your wrath and fury needs forsake,
Let God be God and on Him wait,
All evil He will decimate,
Put hope then in the Lord.

In the here and now,
The wicked may be at their ease,
But very soon their joy will cease,
The meek will all their riches seize,
This given by the Lord.

In the here and now,
While wicked men still gnash their teeth,
The Master yet will laugh, who sees,
That every man will bend his knees,
Before the awesome Lord.

In the here and now,
The wicked draw their swords and darts,
Yet they will enter their own hearts,
The godly Christ makes as the stars,
Perfected by the Lord,
In the here and now.

Justice (Psalm 35:19-28)

O Lord, behold my enemies,
Their tongues are full of lies,
With winking in their eyes,
Their hearts are full of treacheries,
Deception all they speak,
And never seeking peace.

They rise in falsehood in the court,
With open mouths they lean,
And say, “our eyes have seen!”
O Lord, hear then their false report?
Then be not far from me,
Nor in this silence be.

Arise in justice for my case!
For You know what is right,
So for Your servant fight.
And put back justice in its place,
In righteousness ascend,
And put their joy to end.

Do not then let them be content,
Who say, “our dream’s fulfilled,
We’ve swallowed and we’ve killed.”
Since they rejoiced in wickedness,
Their face will blush with shame,
That they might seek Your name.

Yet those who seek Your righteousness,
Will sing in joyful state,
Proclaiming God is great.
I think then on Your faithfulness,
Affirming day and night,
That You are good and right.
