Leviticus 20: The Wages of Sin is Death

The Word of God goes out to all,
That “You shall surely die.”
On human-kind His judgments fall,
With death-damnation from on high.

On those who worship demon-gods,
And kill their children for a fraud,
On those who steal their neighbor’s wife,
On those who take their brother’s life,
On those who curse in blasphemy,
On those who slander – treachery,
On those who sell a man as slave,
Or work upon the day He gave,
On those who would their parents curse,
On those who seek another’s purse,
And even on the lustful one,
Or he who hates his mother’s son,
Or he who serves his mind and heart,
Or from divining truth imparts,
Or he who lies once with with his tongue,
Or he who serves his food and fun:

Yes! All rebellion from the Lord,
And all deserves His dreadful Sword!
And God will judge the evil man,
And nations who won’t give His ban,
And kill the people who ignore,
The Law that comes straight from the Lord.

O! Dreadful truth: none life deserve.
Then why is yet my life preserved?
But is a ransom made for me?
And blood to give me sanctity?
Yes, Jesus Christ my price has paid,
And for my life, His life He gave.
And grace was given, sin erased.
I sing! No fear before His face.

Leviticus 10:1-11: Nadab’s Confession

I saw the form of God,
And yet I did not die.
His holy throne I saw,
I heard the seraphs’ cry.
I ate within His halls,
And joined in psalms of praise.
But when to priesthood called,
My ego was not razed.
Should I then not have known,
The horror of my crime?
Who saw Jehovah’s throne,
Maker of space and time?
Presumption was my fault,
Rebellion, treason, too.
My fire I exalt,
By fire I’m consumed.
My punishment deserved,
All just the Father is,
For all death is reserved,
Who do not learn from this!
The terror of God’s wrath,
Is no complacent thing.
Reserved – oh! dreadful last –
The Judgments of the King.
Then let my smoking corpse,
Impress upon your mind,
How sacred are God’s courts,
Sin’s gravity reminds.
Can anyone then live?
Himself He judged for sin,
The grace but God can give,
To birth new life within.
Then mourn me if you must,
But this keep crystal clear:
Jehovah God is just,
Obey in holy fear,
With terror of your sin,
And humble sacrifice,
His favor none can win,
Be overwhelmed in Christ!
