Salvation and Refuge (Psalm 37:32-40)

The wicked rage and rise,
Accusing righteous men,
But wait upon the Lord;
He won’t abandon them.
For He’ll flush out the wicked man,
His faithful few He’ll give the land.

I saw a mighty man,
New normal laws he claimed.
Again, I looked – he’s gone!
I could not find his fame.
But see, the blameless will remain,
That wicked man was shamed and slain.

Salvation comes from God,
To come through times of need,
Condemning those who sin,
While giving grace for free.
Make Him your refuge in the storm,
Embrace His law, and love your Lord.

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.
